Beav, as I began typing this, my words fail me and my thoughts return to the heartbreak I feel. You were truly one of a kind and there will never be another one like you. You touched more lives than you can imagine. I'll never forget all the times we stayed up late talking about anything and everything; all the 12:01am phone calls to wish me happy birthday; and how you were my best friend no matter the distance. I love you so very much and will miss you forever. But I will see you again my dear and wonderful friend. Rest easy now.
