we grew up on Longwood Dr together, played street ball together, attended grade school, middle school and high school together. You always wanted to be the referee. You kicked field goals and d-jayed house parties. Always part of the action but always one step removed.

I was sorry to hear of your tragic death. I have missed your friendship for many years.
