We have known each other over 25 years and you let me into you and Joan's life. I will miss that smile in your voice everytime we spoke but I know the pain and suffering is long gone. You've moved on to a better place and are now with all those we have loved. You will never be forgotten and as that sun peaks out I will always think of you and Brian. Rest in peace my friend!
