    Allen you were first friend I made when I moved to Leland...I just had became a Teenager when I met you and became friends with you....Now is my last day being Nineteen...and tomorrow I will be twenty...you will be here to wish me a Happy birthday tomorrow...which depresses me considering you always did each year....We have had a lot of good memories...we have had some bad ones too but, that doesn't matter because, we would always laugh it off and tell each other that we loved each other and you said we were brothers...we will always be brothers...death cannot destroy that nor take away our friendship....I never thought I would have to deal with one of my best friends dying...when I received the news of your death ...it felt like the world stopped spinning....there will always be a hole in my heart....I'm glad you don't have to suffer anymore...I will miss our conversations while I was taking us to school...There are a lot of things that depresses me about your death....I will never see you graduate ..I will never see you graduate from Boot Camp...I will never see you get married...I will never see you raise a family and be called Uncle Joe....I will never grow old with you and complain about today's youth....But, most of all ...I will never see you again...or share anymore fun memories....But the memories you gave to me...I will Cherish ...forever...I love you

    I can't believe you are gone. But never forgotten. I will always remember us sitting in Mr. Everett's science class us competing over who got the high score on a test or who could find something faster. You always had a smile on your face. You were there for me during one of my darkest times and I am thankful that you were. I will be missed dearly Allen.
