While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil. - John Taylor

You will forever be in my memories and heart. Even though our opinions were not always the same, my respect and love for you never changed. Thank you for helping me see right from wrong (not that I always listened). You helped my mother raise me and become the God loving person I am today and for eternity I will be forever grateful to you. Love You
