I will miss you brother,  before I started dating Beth we were pretty much inseparable.  Going to the drive in movies. Dirt track races in Woodstock or. Douglasville, mud bogging,, or when we got older the strip clubs, or simply just cruising.  We'd put 50 cents worth of gas in my datsun and ride all night. Good times. I love you brother  always will. I'll see you later
