Ron, we were best friends. We worked together at McDonald’s and spent days just hanging out. You attempted to give me motorcycle lessons. When you got married they stopped. Our friendship continued because your wife, Angie, understood our bond. I still carry you in my heart knowing I will see you once again. I love you like a brother. You were my best friend.
