I will miss you tons! Remembering all the silly moments we had together. Especially when we fought about who had the most longest and beautiful hair. Lol

I don’t even know where to start friend 🙁 We go back some years…I think about 15. I thought of you a few times this past weekend…thought I saw Ed a couple times, but I knew better. Then I got the call giving me the news. Now I’m thinking I really did see him…he had come home for you 😉 I know in my heart you are at peace reunited with him again…and smiling BIG! I’m thankful for the times we got to hang out in the past couple years. You didn’t care that times had changed, you were still my friend, and it meant a lot to me. I’m sorry I didn’t let you know just how much it meant to me. You are missed by so many, and we will never forget you! Football season will not be the same…the Cowboys and Vikings were kinda awesome the past couple years (lol not) but we always supported our boys, and gave each other a little ribbing! The world will not be the same with The Mayan!!!

RIP Brother.
