Still feels like yesterday sometimes. I'm extremely cautious on evictions now. Should have always been but your sacrifice has led me to he more cautious. Your were truly loved Nate and will always be missed. Were right around the corner from your anniversary which is hard. Just wanted to say I love and miss you.
