Please forgive for not writing you. Even though I haven’t, please know I haven’t forgotten about you and I think of you always. You have been really heavy on my mind this last week. It really sucks now since not are you gone, but now I have lost Jay too. I really hope you were there to greet him. I hope you guys can have a few beers together. I only wish I were there with you guys. I have really been reminiscing the last few days. It makes me sad and happy at the same time. If only I could go back in time. Until we meet again. You and Jay better be there to greet me when it’s my time.
