My fondest memories of you is when I would kidnap you against your will to go have coffee and talk, or go grab a bite to eat especially your favorite oyster poboy. You never wanted to leave your house but I made you and you loved every minute. ( I could make you laugh and you made my heart smile) My favorite times is when I would just drive you around and we just talked. I will miss our times together especially our talks about anything and everything! My heart aches for those how were close to you and will miss you. I will miss you and I will always love you. I promise I will come and see you again!
