Kenneth,

I am so so so very sorry.... every year I think of you for who you was and what I did.

I left early that night, if I hadn't you wouldnt have died.

I would have been the first out the car and Christopher knox wouldnt have got the drop on you.

My life has been a complete mess over this and my alcoholism has really factored in my life recently.

I used to deal with it by not thinking about it but a majority of time I do. I tried to get help once but the shrink told me if I did my career was over. He said I had PTSD but I doubt it.

Ya know Charlie sat me down one day and I lied to him and said I was fine when I really wasn't. I blamed myself every day.

I dunno what to do
