Well my friend it has been a year now. It has taken me this long to write to you because it has been hard to describe how much I miss you and to find the words to honor such an amazing friend and human being. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about you and what a profound loss we all feel. Every street I go down and several places that I pass bring up fond memories of you. I will always remember the fun we had together and all of the great memories.
To the best man I knew, I miss you and will forever remember and honor you. Rest in peace my friend. I miss you more than words can describe. #63 you will not be forgotten.
