I didn't realize until recently how much YOU and your beautiful spirit helped create me. To this day I look to you for guidance. I search the stars for you. Two songs resonate with me. Daniel by Elton and The sound of Silence. I kept trying to find ten thousand people in that light bulb. lol and ya I finally figured it out. I miss you Brother, you know , Im quite certain.
