“Fly high my friend. This was a shock to everyone, and you will be missed more then you ever thought. You were the BEST neighbor anyone could ask for. I know you will continue to watch over us always. Still can't believe you aren't going to answer the door when 'The girls' (Dogs) come running to your door. Love you always.”
