For Kevin…

When your ready, this ones on me...

I have known many people. Few have left an impression. More often than not, human contact comes with boat loads of baggage and drama. But sometimes in this life we come across what I like to refer to as a genuine soul. This person desires only interaction with you on a simple, unassuming level, and wants nothing more than a lasting connection born of life’s experiences, yours and theirs. They will not play on your emotions nor will they manipulate your feelings. There is no ulterior motive or secondary agenda, no collateral or payment. I am not speaking of that special someone whom we marry and raise a family with. I’m speaking of a friend, a real friend.

You may come by that person in a multitude of ways and sometimes not even realize they are there. You are comfortable in their presence and stronger because of it. You make one another better and see things through the same prism of life. A bad day is made easier with a laugh and joke, and the genuine concern of this person during a difficult time is felt and acknowledged. Your family’s are inexorably linked and in the absence of one of you there will be the other. All this with no reservation…

Thankfully, that “genuine soul” to me, whom I almost lost last week, will be around so I may kick his ass for almost making me regret not having said all this sooner… Get well soon my friend. There is much to do…

    I am speechless. There is not another like you on the face of the earth, and I am honored to be that friend. Words cannot begin to express the gratitude for all you’ve selflessly done for my family. Thank you brother…
