Memories of you often pop in my head at random times. As they did tonight, 10 years after we lost you. Whenever I need a laugh I think of you coming into my office at the airport with some crazy story to share. Your "sparky" personality , smiling face, & heart of gold has left a permanent impact on me & everyone else whose lives you've touched. I know you're in heaven lounging back with that police hat covering your face. I'll never forget you Court.
