    It’s been a long time, Fred. It’s been too long. I miss you. I know I was stubborn, but you are the best… always there for everyone, always thoughtful, always willing to try anything… and you were super fun and dorky. I loved that. You were the best.

    I know we had our disagreements, and Ive done alot of soul searching, I wanted to reach back out but was nervous… and now, here we are… and you are gone. Lessons learned. I wish I was there for you in your journey. I’m sorry I wasn’t.

    Sending good vibrations and love your way, floating around in space or whatever happens out there when you die.

    You will always be in my heart.
