Well my friend, we are coming full circle. I can remember us playing together even before we attended school. I recall our first day of Kindergarten at PS 1. We were both scared as my brother took us to our classroom and told us to go in. Through those early years we played in our backyards transforming them into magical places that were only limited by our imaginations. Baseball, cub scouts, the list goes on but we were always together. We had fun times and we told each other everything sitting on the steps after playing stoop ball or some other game. And so one of us is gone. This is not the end but the beginning of something new. I look forward to seeing you again. While you're waiting, see if you can line up a ball and a couple of gloves and we'll go out back and have a catch. See you then my friend. Rest easy Tom.
