Goodbye my dear friend, until we meet again. I still see your smile and remember all the goofy things we did together. The trip to The Farm was the best! So, I hope you are enjoying that big farm in the sky. I can imagine all the beautiful flowers you are planting up there for your honey. So much love to you.
