My thoughts turn to you today, the sorrow is still present. You were my best friend and miss you dearly. You always looked out for me, always there to offer guidance in any way. Tears still flow, treating my sorrow and grief. Just as you had left for the military years ago. Like you said, miles and miles apart, we'll always be heart to heart. Someday we'll meet again.

Missing you, friend
