I know you're sleeping, but can I talk to you for a sec? I said I was coming up there to see you and Unc but I haven't made it. Apologies. I can't believe so much time has passed. I haven't forgotten, I have to get my prayers up. I let life beat me down for a sec, but no more. One day we look up and everything is unfamiliar, people, places, ourselves. Only the hurt remains, the memories that burn. I want to just forget sometimes, but the memories are woven into my existence!! Surely I would forget myself if I forget the laughter and love. I haven't talked to your brother in a while, I miss him dearly. Your infectious soul and laughter lives on, comfort the ones who will never recover from losing you, may they hear the laughter and wrap up in the glorious memories when life becomes too much to bear. You, my friend are truly extraordinary!
