We were best buddies even though you were 4 yers older than me & every Sat. you would come over my house at 7 AM & we would watch Tarzan together. You took me on my first visit to Juarez ( not exactly our best move). Never forget when I moved up to the varsity football team & you came out of the game & told me to take your place & they ran a touch down right past me & coach asked what the hell are you doing in the game & I said
Teddy told me to go in, we all laughed our ass off including coach? Loved that man & just wish I had known him later on in life. Just hope you had the life you deserve Ole buddy as you were an awesome friend to a young man, thanks!

I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts and your wonderful memories will give you some relief during this difficult time.
