    Linc was my best friend and the brother I never had, we spent our childhood and teens together on up into our mid 30s, we were always there for each other. When I moved to Arizona to be closer to my kids after they mover to Arizona he visited me, and it was too hot for him to handle, I understood. He went back to Oregon and I never had direct contact with him after that, I think it was around 2021, but I never lost contact with him. Then there was a laps in time, and it was for some years, with out even knowing how long his life has gone to shit without me being there there for him. I regret not being there for him, I loved him so, but that doesn’t count. God bless my best friend I ever has, rest easy buddy.
    See you soon.

I remember one time we ran away it was just a few blocks and we found some dry ice behind the hardware store and Linc touched it and hollered ouch it burned me I was like ice can’t burn you so I touched it and had the same reaction hahaha. I will miss you so much until the day we are reunited love you brother
