    One of my first real friends. So many great memories from our youth, and although our paths diverged in our 20's, i will always cherish the times we'd run into each other and talk like no time had passed. You were the most loyal person I have ever met and this plane of existence is worse off without you here. Rest easy brother.

    I know you are living a "brighter day" now Jamie but please keep a watchful eye on the family from above, especially your Mom. Send her a cardinal when you can. Love, Sherry There is no night without a dawning No winter without a spring And beyond the dark horizon Our hearts will once more sing... For those who leave us for a while Have only gone away Out of a restless, care worn world Into a brighter day.
