"Well Chad it's been 11 years since the last time I saw you and I just wanted you to know I have not forgotten you. I can still remember the last time I saw you. We hung out drank some well deserved beers and told our tales. Iam so gratefull that you came back to corpus that day and stopped by to see Candace and i. It was like God brought you home so we could see you before your final journey. Just know we still miss you. We had so many great journeys together in high school after high school and through our military careers. Love you brother. Wish we could have one more BBQ and beer and kick our shoes off in the sand together. You will not be forgotten."
