You told me you filled up your tank one day and drove until it ran out of gas, and so it brought you to Newport News. I will always remember you as respectful, kind and sweet. At a time when things were tough at home for both of us, you still kept it professional. What we had was special, clean. I thank you for that. I just found out, and it's been six years. This means you left right before my mom. I have missed you all these years and now I miss you even more. I can still hear the sound of your voice and see your smile. May you rest in peace.
