"Nate, It has taken me a bit longer to get to this page because I didn't know how I would say goodbye. We had some good times at poci. When I think back with my eyes closed I can still see us shacking hands in the hallway. I remember me telling you to be safe and keep your head down. You just laughed your laugh and told me not to worry. That was the last time I got to see you... But I do take some condolance in knowing you are now watching us from a safe place. I miss ya man... Now Emsweiller and Skarin are over there and the worring starts all over again. My wife asked me soon after the funeral about what I was thinking about...I simply told her that I now fully realized life is definately too short. I could pass on at any second. I needed start living life to its fullest, way more than I have up to this point and cherish my family and friends, like I may not see them tomorrow. So Nate until that time comes to where I can shake you hand and see ya, I will be thinking and praying for you and your family...I miss ya Pal..."
