    I love you and miss you everyday. I hate that you’re gone and it eats away at me everyday. I failed you as a friend and I hate that the last thing I said to you was “ you motherfucker!” You did spray with me with mace thought. Every time I see a shitty silver Taurus, I think of you. Or when one of my boots asks me a retarded question about FDC, I think about you. Or when I hear the colts are still sucking. It hasn’t been easy without you, it’s been really hard actually. Just so you know, I got promoted to staff sergeant the day you left, I heard about you 2 minutes before getting pinned. The way I felt then is how I feel now. I forgive you, and I’ll always have this feeling of emptiness without you, but I forgive you….. I love you brother, I’ll never stop thinking about you.
