Hey old man. I can't believe my best friend has almost been dead for 3 years now. Kinda hard to believe. I know that you can see me from up there. I really hope you're proud of me. I was the last one to see you in the hospital that day. And I kissed you goodbye for the last time. I never thought that I'd have to do it that soon. I remember me feeding you while watching Armageddon in the basement with Thor laying down next to us. I hope you're enjoying his company up there. I miss you both so much. He was one of the only things I had left of you. I will always have the skill of sarcasm you gave me though. Which is a plus for us. I always think I'm getting over your death. But the truth is I never will. It's been 3 years and I still cry everytime I think about you. You were truly my best pal. I only knew you for 12 year of my life. And that is very little. But you made such a huge impact on me that I will never forget. I still sit in your chair. And it's mine now. I sit there and eat popcorn and watch family guy like we used too. Except you were in the chair and I was on the couch. But things are different now. And the world is changing. And without you here. I don't know where to start in the bizarre world. I really hope you're proud. I love you old man. And I always will💕
