I heard your news yesterday and I tossed and turned throughout the night with memories racing through my head. I have sorrows as I did not know of your suffering. Oh what fun it would be to reminisce our past. You will always be a part of my history, that will never change. The countless years we spent together but minutes I would never change. You helped shape my life to what it is today. I hope you felt the same. I know the definition of a friend based on who you were to me.
As I think of our times I recall many crazy things. I remember many firsts and all the fun we had. What would disco be without you on the floor? I hear songs today with memories of our past. From the Commodores, Bee Gees, Journey, Foreigner, and the Cars, all have special memories of our times. Your dash board drumming still rings in my ear.
Our first ski trip, what fun we had, missing the bus, how did we know it was 6:00 AM and not 6:00 PM?
Our first apartment, I guess we were too loud?
Our trip to Padre, did you know after playing in the Gulf all day you could be miles from where you started?
So many days were spent on the basketball court or on the softball diamond sharing time with all your friends. We had our fun times together but there are many others that have their own special memories of you. I read through the guest book and remember all the faces with whom you befriended. I remember your smile and stories with many individuals. My memories continue to surface but now remember you lay your head down for the final day. Outwardly sad with tears on my face, but so happy I was able to share memories with you.
God bless us all,
