I sit here thinking of you Chris, you're heavy on my mind and I think of you often. We spent six months in the academy together and those moments I'll carry with me the rest of my life. I'll never forget the day I found a cell phone in the middle of Wellington Rd and of all people who called it, you! I remember meeting with you to return it not knowing it was the last time we'd speak. It took me years to finally write this, I miss you my friend.
