Hey buddy. I miss you and the crazy things we did. I'm holding it down for you. I really hope I'm doing right by you Jimmy. I visited the national memorial in DC and saw your name. I could see you looking saying, "that's pretty cool." I do believe I will go to Denny's this week and get the Dagwood!

We rode the shift in your honor tonight. Every time I drive by our honey hole I honk the horn for you. My wife even remembers and honks too! I can't believe its been 13 years...
