Goodness buddy, where to begin, no matter how far life takes you apart from friends they are always still friends. This dude was one of a kind, and always ready for fun! Irreplaceable soul, and was as close as to a brother that a friend could be for many years. Tomorrows never promised so if you got a friend that you haven’t heard from in a while, don’t hesitate to check in and see how life’s treating them, one day it’ll be to late and you’ll wish you could! Rest easy amigo, hope there is an abundance of belly high green grass and sure footed mounts! Save us a spot and watch over us till we meet again pard! Skee Burkes
