Dear Michelle, I have never forgotten about you and your undying support of me during our relationship. When I got the call that you and Danny were setting flares to direct a wreck and a multiple offender ran you over, I couldn't believe it. At the wake I was weak and fainted. Seeing you in uniform in the was surreal. You had my back in my applying to become an HPD. I was still rehabing my knee from football at Tech. I miss you still. I know we dated for almost a year and I was always the one to back off as I was insecure and really envied you.
I love you and remember I had only said that once before meeting you.
God Bless You!
