Chad Eric, you will be missed more than you will know. The day before, when i saw you mowing grass, i did not know the pain behind that smile and wave. However, I will see you again one day and you will be walking without that stupid cane and you will not have to hold onto that fence to push mow. I love you my brother and know that you are finally at peace.
