A bright light has gone dark and left a hole in my heart. Sometimes over the top, always contagiously fun and burning with intensity of perpetual youth, our friend has left us too early. I will miss the sound of clogs on hardwoods at 3 am and the childlike abandon that never allowed him to consider that clogs on hardwoods at 3am might be inconsiderate. The giggles, the mischief shining in his face, the countless wonderful memories, experiences and the simple goodness of his heart will never be forgotten.
I hope Kerry has a wonderful meal prepared and Banshee is curled in your lap even now as you talk with Grandma. I'll be missing you until we meet again, my friend! Be at peace.
