He was a gift from God. I didn't know it then but I know it now. Our bond was strong, too strong to be coincidence. My love for him was huge, and I think he felt pretty much the same way about me.
I learned so much from him. I just hope I can honor him by retaining the knowledge and living a life that qualifies me to be reunited with him. I can't imagine now that there will ever be a day on this earth that I don't miss him mightily. I hope and pray that we are one day together again, taking care of each other in the next existence.
