I have known my best friend since December 11, 1984. On that day my life took a turn for the better. I first learned that he could and would ask questions about you. After a few days of those drive bys, we had lunch together. After my wife moved to Northern Virginia , Michael introduce us to Trish. Michael and I did a lot together and then the four of us would do things and go places together. He loved my kids as I loved his son.
We did things as family’s together. We talked often and relished every conversation and text message. In the last few months he asked me why did God choose him to go through this. My reply, because he knew you could get through it and as a result, inspire many others including me. His purpose was making others feel good, inspiring people, and prodding them to stay optimistic. Thank you my best friend for your uniqueness, love, fun, and being my hero. You will always be in my heart and your family has a place there as well. God bless and Rest In Peace. My memories of you explode like fireworks in a dark sky, all so loud and beautiful.
