    I miss you every day. You were one of the kindest people I ever knew. I don’t recall your ever once saying a bad thing about anyone, or gossiping, or raising your voice. You were a friend to all, and I am a better person for having known you. I hope you’re fishing in the best streams now. You so deserve to sit on the banks, catch the biggest fish, and think about nothing but what makes you feel joy.
