Nothing will be the same because you have left, we only talked but never really met. I know you have family i know you have friends, we will meet 1 day when my story ends. I can only imagine what mightve been, i hope you know ill keep you close. I hear your voice still over the phone. It all seems like a horrible dream, like a puzzle falling with the finished piece.

I cried for the first time in a couple years, even the tought brings me to tears, The earth is such a cruel place, an angel was made to take you away….

I love my brother, rest in glory for you will never be forgotten….

I haven’t seen you since high school but you were a good friend. Kind, funny and always open to help. My heart and prayers go out to your wife and children, your parents. Until we meet again Mike.
