So so sorry to stumble across this while casually searching your name today.
We lost touch over the years but I hope you always remembered our chats, dating back 20+ years now.
They meant so much to me, at a very vulnerable time.
Your influence on who I've become, who I've grown to be, will always be with me, my friend.
I can't believe I'll never hear one of your colorful stories again.
You will be missed "R."
