    My heart is so heavy. I don’t even know what to say. My husband and I used to rent off Mark and Mike on W. Barner. We decided we liked that end of town so much that we bought the house next door. Mark would come by and see us often. We go by his house to and from Lafayette. Whenever he was outside we’d stop and visit. I don’t even know what this summer will be like without talking to him.
    Fly high my crazy buddy.
