I remember years ago, both E.J. and I spent hours chasing each other around his yard and woods near his house with toy guns (pretending to be soldiers). This one day in particular, he says he got me before I got him (which he did, but I didn't want to lose). He busted his toy rifle on my leg out of frustration, but it luckily didn't hurt. Lol..... we stopped for a second and started to laugh (his laugh was one of a kind). What's the moral of this story? Simple..... we had such a tight bond as friends and just blew it off as a joke and quickly made up because that's just what brothers do. Our friendship grew from children all the way up to manhood. Bonds like this can't be broken. Responsibilities and growing up drew us apart, yet we always managed to catch up on current and old times here and there. He is, was and always will be like a brother to me. I love you brother and will always. You'll live forever in my heart and memories. God bless you and rest in peace.

God bless your entire family and may he give them strength. We'll all miss you and never forget old times...... Love you bro
