The clock is ticking past year twenty and it doesn't seem to feel probably never will. I never wanted to get acquainted with grief, but life forced it upon me. I will miss you forever and always pray the truth comes out. All those surrounding these events, may be exposed and fall flat on their faces. You were one of the good ones. We all know that.
