Hey man, I was thinking about you today. It's been a few years since I posted something but, you're in my thoughts all the time.

Those few years we spent working together at B&B and you making fun of me looking at my wallet photo with my then girlfriend while I was in my US Army camouflage BDUs You said I looked like a bruised pickle! Hahaha.

When things get hard and I am down in whatever, I can always remember your encouragement and that smile. The re-assuring smile that it'll be OK.

Or when we would eat lunch and you'd pick chips out of my bag and slowly put it in your mouth, smiling... That smile. I miss you brother.
