In Memory of Jeff Pino

In Memory of Jeff Pino

February 5, 2017

We had the privilege of having Jeff Pino in our lives for two years. It was much too short, but to call him a friend for a short period of time was better than none. Jeff came to us in February 2014 and asked us to take care of his P-51, from that point on we became quick friends.
