The anniversary of your death is fast approaching. 9 long years of your absence. Still seems like yesterday that we spoke. I think of you often and almost everyday. Certain songs make me think of you and the laughter of your voice when we talked. I still cant find a place in me to believe that your gone. I still can not delete your messages or number from my phone. Ricky, please never forget me. Rest in heaven with God and I know one day I will see you again. Missing you still and always C.J.
