My longest time best friend is no longer on earth but I won't forget all the good times we had. We were marines and saw each other's children grow up. I look forward to being together in the hereafter. Stay strong all of you that are left behind. Feeling bad that I'm away in Florida this week. Thoughts and prayers.
