My dearest friend... I can't believe more than 30 years has passed since I heard your voice or saw your sweet smile! You were the dearest of friends and I was so very lucky to have you in my life. You would be so proud of Bryan. He has grown up to be such a wonderful young man and Patti did such an awesome job of raising him. I thank you so much for the sacrifice you made and for your service. I will never understand why God takes the young and the best, it seems. Someday we will know. You will always have a place in my heart and I will always think of you and miss you... My love always, friend...
