I've known you since I was just 18 years old and I'm 61 now. I can barely remember my life before you and life after you will never be the same. You were my rock, my best friend and I'll love you until I die. Will you tell Liz that I miss her? This wasn't the way we planned it to be but I guess you were not in control of what you wanted it seems to me.
