Last week Destro was practicing writing his letters of the alphabet and when he wrote M, he said m is for Mommy and that means love. He loved his Mommy.

I'll love you forever, Meagan. There's only one lost soul in the fishbowl now. Sexual Octopus.

My deepest sympathies to the Rodriguez family. Melissa and Michael that obituary was very spot on and brought me to tears. It's been years since I've seen Meagan but I still know every word of that was true. I'm keeping you and Carol and Rod and the rest of your family in my thoughts. I'm sorry I can't be there on Tuesday. Stay strong!
