This Came as a shock for me. i remember our growing up near each other. all of the Fun times we had together. we worked on cars together went on dates together and even got pulled over a lot of times by Clayton county police. we kind of lost contact with each other for a while but even if we didn't talk we still knew what each other was doing from time to time.
We have shared a roof over each others head at times and we still had our family's with us. I will always remember going to stone mountain to the hungry fishman to eat. you and i always got a platter of crab legs while everyone else got chicken or steak. they didn't like seafood.
You will be missed by me and LaDonna. You were a good friend while we were growing up and even after we got older and had our own Familys.
