Hey buddy, I miss you... You enter my thoughts regularly and it always makes me smile thinking about some of your shenanigans. I miss our chats, I miss your ridiculous efforts to bust my chops, I miss your laugh, I miss that look you'd give me when words weren't necessary as we were each thinking the same thing about what needed to happen. I miss you brother.
