Dear RD.... For somebody who loved life having yours taken out from under you seems like a cruel twist of fate. I know we're not siblings by blood, but we all share similar memories of growing up and to be honest I know we may not be close and we had our fights....I wouldn't change any of it for the world. Today is your birthday you turn 30, how cruel it is that you can't be here to celebrate it, I'll be thinking of you and remember all those funny times we had. I know we were never really close and I know it seems cleche but I actually regret not being able to know more about you. I can't imagine how the rest of the feemily are feeling today, but as for myself I feel lost, I don't know what else to feel. Today is your birthday... Happy birthday. Vaya con Dios brother.
