  1. My dear friend, How I remember the good times we had through high school. You were a true friend then and I am sorry we did not keep up with each other as we should have. Your visit to Austin that one time and the picture you gave me has been the best gift you could have given me in our friendship. I will continue to pray for you and your family as they go through this difficult time. I will surely miss you my friend. Love You and Rest in Peace wih our Lord Jesus Christ forever.
