I'm not sure what to say. You were a true friend, and a major influence on my life. I wouldn't be tattooing today if it weren't for you. You gave me the push I needed to follow my dream with the tenacity that you lived your life. Your influence will remain with me for the rest of my life and I will never be the same person. I miss you, bro. I will miss the chess games and the conversations. I know that when I ride, you will be there riding with me. Thank you Stokes, for all that you taught me. Ride in Peace.
