I'll always remember how you would come over and walk me to school when I started 1st grade.
You would tell me, " see I know what you're suppose to do in 1st grade since I was already in it! And you let me know if anybody pick on you and I'll get 'em!" You were my friend and my protector. Rest In Peace.
