I think about you every day. Who you were as a sweet boy carried through in your manhood even while wearing the badge. I still do the three stooges routine you made so many of us laugh at in front of the gym. Do people know you had a joke book? Someone took it. Did you ever get it back? I also think about your wife and son and know you never get used to losing the love of your life. I haven't.
