It's hard to believe my buddy has passed. I'm saddened and heart warmed at once. Saddened in the loss of a dear friend. Heart warmed in the knowledge of everything I learned from my father-in-law and all the good times we had together. Your spirit is left to soar now, leaving your exhausted earthly shell behind. I love you and will miss you my friend.
