My Dear Friend....You know it took me over 5 years to find out that your Real Name was Jude!
No matter what..You will always be Chili Pepper to me!
I can't ever Thank You enough for all of the laughs and smiles you gave to me through the years! No matter the situation.....you were able to make it all better by coming up with that one comment that once said..would make everyone turn and say..."I can't believe he really just said that"...and than afterwards would make everyone stop and laugh about it!
I don't think you ever knew a stranger...strange people maybe...but strangers never!
We're all going to Miss You...and there will Never be another like you.
Rest peacefully knowing that your memory...like the stories and adventures you have left behind...will be around for generations to come!
None of us ever dreamed that we would so soon be speaking the phrase "remember when Chili Pepper" to begin a story about a memory of you!...and you know that thanks to you..We all have some great memories..and wonderful stories to tell..stories to keep our spirits high and smiling when we need them most!
So for now..and until the day we all meet once again at that round card table in that big bar room in the sky...
Thanks for the memories my dear friend...and most of all....
Thanks for being You!

It is said that in life, you will meet people that will have an impact on your own life. You are one of those people in my life. You were the person that showed me how to be myself...You showed me how to be free!! You were the "funnest" spirit I have ever encountered.. Thanks for the memories!! Thanks for the fun.. I love you, (Chilli Pepper)!! Gone but never forgotten!! Prayers for your family!!

We first met at New Iberia Senior High School and have been friends ever since. Your spirit was gentle and your laugh contagious, and I will always be grateful and lucky to have had you in my life for as long as you were. I will deeply miss you and my love for you will never fade. Until we meet again my sweet dear friend, fly high to Heaven and sing out with the Angels.
