You once told me that “Fair weather friends are a dime-a-dozen.” I could not agree more. True friends stick with you through thick and thin. God knows we have shared some of those times!
Now that you have gone to a better place, who do I share those moments with?
No one. Ours was a special friendship, a special bond that cannot be duplicated.
Still, I am going to miss your “What’s going on, big boy?” greeting, our shared opinions of anti-socialist political types, and your obvious love for Kyle and his family and for your sisters.
There was never any gray area with you. You were either in or you were out.
You never shared with me your given name of “Jimmie Frank”. Oh, I would have had great fun with that! Jimmie Frank, kind of like Joe Don Looney.
No one could make me laugh like you could and now, you bring tears to my eyes. I loved you like a brother and will miss you like crazy.
P.S. You still owe me for the Clemson – Miami game. I will collect later.
