    Thinking of the family and friends during this difficult time. I still have no words and can't believe your gone. From dirt mudpies and creek swimming, and to sneaking to play David's video games whenever we got a chance. Growing pains, heartbreaks, and growing up. I will never forget you brother and all the wonderful times we had growing up as Gordon Road Goonies. Everytime I check the mail I think of you just praying it's all a bad dream and hoping to find a letter letting me know I'll see you soon. Until we meet again RY start building our clubhouses in the sky. To Lynn and David and the rest of the immediate family please know I am thinking of you today and always!
