"You were one of the good ones Lynch! Can’t believe it’s been sixteen years now. I didn’t know you the best out of the guys. You and I didn’t like to talk all that much. We both liked music I know that. You always showed up at my room if I had some tunes going. I wish we had spoke more. I would know more about you. You were a good soul and a good soldier. We will jam out again some day and have a good long convo. Until then, rest easy my brother."
