To me you will forever be the smiling face as we sat the last night in the Highlands. I have never forgotten you, you are always in my heart. The pain of your death reaches into my hidden soul. Nothing I have done since, I have remembered you and all the others, in everything that I have lived. I will visit you soon and sit by your grave and shed my tears. You are forever my brother, more than my own flesh and blood. We will all meet again when I slip from this life to God's side. Til then, peace.
