Time doesn't go by and certain songs come on the radio that I am not taken back by the wild times we had. You didn't get the credit for my first beer, but you got it for getting me to choking on my first Winston cigarette and swallowing my first Copenhagen dip! 
Brotherhoods are forever, but sometimes our lives aren't..... You and Phillip were the two that I figured we would always be seeing each other, but I was wrong. I lost Phillip somewhere after the reunion, but hopefully we will catch up again.
Miss you my Brother!

Steve lived on the same block as me when we were in elementary, we remained friends after he moved to a different area closer to Crockett Jr. High. I would visit him at his new home and his mother was very kind to me. He had good morales and was an all around great guy!

When I think of Lubbock, and when I go to Lubbock; I think of you and "Horsey" , Bud. I try to sneak in to the little cafe where you and the other TTC's ate. The owners remember you well.
There will be another time when we will reunite, my Brother.
