Hello my dear friend, as Christmas approaches again, I still miss you. Our intercontinental phone calls were always so full of laughter, I still can't believe you're gone. I pray you're at peace - I will always miss you my dear friend.

Donna , I wish I didn't have cold feet when you invited me over to the new Florida home . I was blown away when you told me you wanted to be closer to me . I shouldn't have talked you out of flying down to me in Ft Lauderdale 3 years ago , to hang out with Nicko McBrain from Iron Maiden and I . I wouldn't have had the time to pay you attention as I am Nicko'S shadow.
I was excited that you moved here , I could finally meet the twins , who would get on moms cellphone and send out messages to me , posing as mom , right Jacob ? Too funny
To be honest , I was afraid of you Donna , not in a bad way . I looked at myself in the mirror and said " What do I have to offer to Donna and the kids , that they do not have already " ? I felt like a schlub, what could this gorgeous, beautiful lady , see in a guy like me ?
I do not look like one of those rocker, tatted up biker type live life on the edge type of guys . I bodyguard a few of those types , but Donna , you didn't care , you weren't star struck . Maybe if I wasn't this Gentle Giant that wasn't shy , then chances are , I probably would be writing this .
On a sad note , on the night we lost you , I was sitting in a cemetery called Curlew Memorial Gardens , paying my respects to my friend and guitarist from the heavy metal band Savatage - Christopher M Oliva . I got out of my truck , lit a smoke , played his music from my stereo , knelt down and prayed , when I looked up at the eternal flame , burning not far from my location , I saw a 5' tall black shadow of a thin ghost , running towards my location and it went right through me and I freaked out . I had a cold sweat , the chills and screaming in my head . I knew at that point , that I had lost someone close to me , but nothing . For weeks I heard nothing , then forgot about it. I figured you found a musician guy , like the one we spoke of. I figured after you got back and invited me over and I didn't come, I figured you met someone else. When your oldest called me last week with the news , I have been crying , can't sleep . You needed me and I didn't see it . You wanted stability which I had . I am beside myself . I lost you , you are my yin as I am your yang , but I was to stupid to see it . I blame myself for not being there for you , I am so sorry Donna . We will meet again , I'll see you on the other side my love .
