24 Years this morning you have been gone. I miss you every day Brother. You and Paula I know are proud, your sons have grown into two fine men. I feel so sorry for them because they never got to know you. And to describe you to them, words fail me.

So I go to the memorials, and I give them a hug. I tell a few stories I can still recall, and i tell them how much I respected and loved you.

I thank you for the friend you were to me in the short time we knew each other. I hope I returned your friendship in something akin to equal measure. I will keep going as long as I can, keep telling the boys what a good man and friend you were. I respect you, I miss and remember you daily, and love you like a brother.
