Although my time was short with him it will never be forgotten he will never know how much he meant to me ,and the void that he filled after the loss of my father. Salvation is something that I strive for every day. These sad times are only reminders of what I need to do here so that I may see my loved ones again .I hold onto that chance because there is nothing to lose. Until we meet again have fun in paradise.
