So that’s why you were called home I think of you day and night just wish I was there to save you from harm. I always told you I will never let nothing happen to you. And that’s what hurt sooooooo much that I couldn’t protect you but we love you. I will never let you die in my heart, you will always live forever Your dad and best friend. You old dude, that’s what you called me.
