The first twenty years of our life we fought like cats and dogs. Then we grew up got married to our spouses and became cousins or how we should of acted. Then he moved away we raised our familes. Few years ago I had cancer, Alan called me ever week to see how I was. If I was having a bad day he called back in a day or two. He didn't miss a week even if he didn't feel good. I'm going to miss those calls and visits.
