You were a good friend all thru high school just wish we could have lived closer to stay in touch. We were always getting into some type of mischief. I remember one time a group of us went to the lake to spend the night and you and I decided to go an get some beer. The place was closed so some how we ended up heading to Augusta which made perfect sense to us! Half way there the van broke down and we started to push but then decided to knock on a run down shacks door in the middle of the night, which also made sense. Luckly they didn't shoot us and let us call your cousin's in Augusta. When we finely made it back to the lake late the next day come to find out they had call police and put out missing persons for us. You will be missed my friend! Maybe one day we can go on another adventure.
