Don't know where to start you have always been a part of my life since elementary school..No matter how long we would go between seeing each other it was always like we had just talked the day before...You have always amazed me with your kind of work I can still hear you laughing the time I ran into you guy's eating dinner about you couldn't pay me five hundred dollars to get on there must less stay on the roof and work..This is the times I am gonna miss you like crazy...God has work in heaven he needs done so you spread your wings and take flight my sweet friend.. Godspeed till we meet again...
