    As I look back over time I find myself wondering did I remember to thank you enough. The time we spent talking about our children, our wives. To celebrate our successes. To understand our problems and accept our defeats when we bet on the wrong team to win the game. I wonder if I ever thanked you enough, for the laughter, smiles, and time we shared. If I have forgotten to show my gratitude enough for all the things you did to help me when I first started working for Home Depot, I hope you knew all along how much you meant to me. Rest in peace my brother. Until we meet again. Job well done!
