Eric Mckinstry, I honestly am speechless. You have been my best guy friend since I was 13 years old. From going to Cedar Point, to ding dong ditching in my neighborhood, riding four wheelers, getting Steak ‘n shake when we had absolutely nothing else to do.
We would hangout days on end during the Summer and still not get sick of each other. We have been through so much. I am so glad I got the chance to know you and it breaks my heart typing this right now. I can’t believe I only talked to you just a couple days ago about planning￼ to visit you in FL. Your family and Willow are in my prayers. Thank you for being such a good friend.
