Hey Bro’…wishing you a Happy New Year. Wish you were here, Well you are actually. I miss you and all your energy. We all do. I sent some emails today to our friends and family, I haven’t spoken to them in years. I pray that they are well…always. GEMINI.

william–It’s been 8 years since you moved beyond this existence. I miss you still. There are reminders of you all around our neighborhood. You would freak out at all the changes in Chelsea and the Flatiron–it’s a whole new land. Always thinking of you. I’ll see you when I see you Willy.–love, hugs, and kisses mi bello amigo

William- 7 years ago I began the journey learning about grief. I dreamt last night that you and Jason came to get me, you said, “C’mon let’s go to my house” and it was so real, just like old times. I was even confused when I woke up, then I realized today’s date. Michael Fisher and I always talk about you, we will always remember. You were such a good friend to me. I can’t believe its been 7 years. I called your dad cause I wanted him to know that we think about you and have great memories.

We’ve been thinking about you a lot and missing you, especially since your birthday was so recent. I went up to the Cathedral on June 2nd and left you some yellow flowers, a candle and a birthday card. Someone else had also lit a candle for you, so I arranged a nice little still-life.
Love from Sarah, Taylor, Cynthia and me.
