Favorite Quote:
"They say that right before you die, your life flashes before your eyes. Make it worth watching."

Through the smiles,
Through the tears.
Through the laughter,
Through the years.

I'll remember,
That you were there.
The only one,
Who seemed to care.

Through the fights,
We never won.
What mattered most,
Was so much fun.

You could stand,
In the rain.
To hear me out,
To feel my pain.

For only you,
Could be the one.
Stand by my side,
When day is done.

You'll be there,
Until the end.
So here's to you,
My dear friend.
