I also can't believe it has been 20 yrs since that horrible night. I know you are in a far far better place and smiling right now at all the people who still remember you. You are a hard one to forget with that killer smile. My kids always ask is Jeff coming to babysit us they too couldn't wait to see you. I can't wait to see you again my brother from another mother! God is preparing a place for us and he has to take some of the best to get it ready for all the rest! I miss you still!
