I still cannot believe it is true. I have lost so many friends to the same old causes, over half of the characters from my book are now gone. RIP Reese....I just still cannot believe it. I keep thinking about you, and I keep thinking about all the time we spent together in New Orleans. I keep thinking about you, sitting in the big, blue chair at Big daddy's as we lamented over Jenny. I see the pain on your face like a photographic memory. Please tell Jenny hello for me. I keep thinking about all the talks we have had since those times, and I still cannot believe it. You know, when you told me you were honored by your character in my book it meant so much to me. I wish I would have better expressed that to you. I am honored that you memory will live on forever through all of us, Reese, and I am honored that you loved the Reese in my book, the Reese that you were, that we all knew you to be. God damn, man...I fucking love you. If I have anything to do about it, your memory, along with the memory of Junkie Johnny (which you and I talked about...) will live infinitely as my words will. Remember when we talked about my finally naming that chapter in my book 'Junkie Johnny,' after I found out he was gone? I wish I could name one after you now...I guess you will be featured in the next story...RIP dear friend. I just cannot believe it.
