To my friend, my high school sweetheart, my first boyfriend, and my first love...

  Even though we went seperate paths, I always thought we would merge back down the same road.  We grew up together, it only made sense that we would grow old together.  I never in my worst nightmares thought you would leave this earth so soon.  You have always occupied a very secure place in my heart and now it is empty. 

  I pray for your daughters, grand daughter, your parents and the friends you left.  We all had a very special man in our lives and we will miss you until we meet again.   May you rest in peace...
