    I know it’s been a while since you passed but to me it seems only yesterday that I saw your smiling face. I miss you more than words can express! I talk to you everyday like we always did the only thing is I dont hear your voice talking back. I feel your presence whenever I go to see Henry and Tyishia at your home. Henry and ty are doing well as can be expected they miss you tremendously naturally. I saw them 2 weeks ago and cut Henry’s hair gotta keep him presentable you know. It does me good to go talk to someone who loved you and still loves you. Idon’t know what to say except that I wish you were still here with all yourfriends and family. I don’t understand why you had to go so soon maybe someday I will. It just hurts so much not to be able to pick up the phone and hear your cheery voice. Ijust have to believe that you hear me and there are times that I think I see you I feel your presence alot and think of you everyday. you are my best friend noone could ever take your place we have been through high school and lifes ups and downs and never lost touch for 30 years.
