Brett my friend, I'm sitting here, over 21 years, after losing you and reflecting back on old memories. Every time I look at your picture it breaks my heart knowing that there will never be another Jacks River camping/fishing trip. They will never be another Cohutta camping/hunting trip. I remember, like it was yesterday, when you were called home. I love and miss you brother. You're gone but never forgotten. I will see you again, one day, brother and until then the memories of all the good times we had will live on!!
