I will forever miss your voice, your loudness, your craziness and your thoughts on life that usually defy all reason. I miss your laughter and your tears. I miss your daily texts and calls just checking on each other. I miss hearing you say, “ya think I won’t?!” ... or the way you say bat-trees instead of batteries.. I will miss the silly stuff we did just driving around Flint; day trips to the Eagle’s, pizza from the Cafe or grabbing a burger at the Midway. I will miss our trips to West Virginia for a quiet day. I miss your kindness, your thoughtfulness, your generosity and the way you’d go out of your way to help everyone in need; never passing judgment on anyone ever! Thank you for sharing the last 3 years with me. You treated me like a daughter, a great friend and always just one of the guys.
Most of all...
I will forever miss just sitting around the countertop talking crap over a few too many bud lights with you! I love you Big Guy!
