    I am missing you my friend . Everyday that passes I am reminded of you by the air conditioner, your Dunkin coffee cups and the jewelry findings I acquired. I also have the memories of the casino and bingo. You know you made me crazy at times but I loved you and you were a very good friend to me. Keep a spot for me! Love Sharon
