    Aww…jeez Mike. Growing up with you was absolutely amazing. Completely unbeatable. We had so much fun exploring the old abandoned Alpha cement quarries, buildings, & surrounding property. Even fishing the back quarry! You taught me how to fish, learning how to tie proper knots with fishing line.
    I never told you how much I admired you. I never said thank you for spending so much time with my little brother when he was the only kid in the neighborhood as young as him, teaching him the ways to ride a skateboard and do tricks. Thank you for building that ramp in your backyard and finding a home for it when your mom said it must go. If I were able to pick a moment of my life as the happiest, a piece of time to forever spend eternally in heaven, it would be one of those summer days when all the kids would gather at that giant ramp and spend the entire day. You and I were the only kids who could ride that ramp halfway decently, & that made me so proud of myself for the first time.
    I hope you have found your mother in heaven by now, along with the welcoming arms of our lord. Ask around up there, see if you can find my Dad too. Talk with him, he knows how much of a friend your were to me. He will help you with anything.
    I won’t say goodbye because I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN. I do have to stop typing now, I can’t even see the letters through my tears.
    P.S. I would love it if your father could pick up that Gibson and play it. A part of Mike’s soul lives on in that guitar. I’d imagine he will be able to hear you.
    Love, Jeff Zimmerman
