You were one of my best friends. You still are one of my favorite people. I know we disagreed at times about how you should launch your business and I know that there was tension in there somewhere that maybe made it hard to hang out. And I know you had your brothers as your go-to best friends when you needed someone to hang out with.
Now you've got a little baby I'd love to meet, and more than anything I just want to see you again and laugh with you. You always made me laugh, with your cherubic attitude and your indomitable optimism.
Sorry for doing it this way, but you never answer when I call. I miss you.
