Javid Kamali says
I’m a fool for having assumed we had all the time in the world to reunite with eachother. You are still my best friend. Most of my childhood memories were made by us. Riding bicycles to the creek fishing, testing our luck to go out on thin ice in the winter. So many memories, we were inseparable. We always will be. You’ll always have your own personal part of my heart that no one can ever replace. So many years have past since we saw each other last, yet I still think about you everyday. That won’t change either. You were kind, brilliant, grateful, optimistic, loyal, nothing could discourage you. I’ll miss you dearly brother. Please watch over me? I’m going to live life like I know you are. I’ll make you proud. I love you.
Truely your best friend,
