Where do I start. I grew up with him and he was my buddy. He taught be how to flip over fences we we played hide a seek. He always would kick the can for me when we played kick the can so I would not hurt myself. He then went on to date two of my best friends. He always took care of me like a brother when we would go out with a lot of people. Not to mention we either did or didn’t skip school a few times and go to In A Tub for lunch. I have several fond memories of him two many to list. My prayers are with all of you.

I miss you calling me every night and giving me hell because I don't call you but when I did you never called me back. I miss your voice and I still wait for that phone call I loved you so so much and you will be forever in my heart
