    I hit the jackpot when you decided to become my #1 supporter and advocate in Grade 2. We spent 7 good years together getting in and out of trouble. Mom thinks she can write a book about our escapades from the years of hilarious journal entries in the communication books. Don't worry, I will never tell who the vandals of Juniper Rd were, your secret is safe with me. I started out as a little punk who wasn't up to your shoulder and each fall you'd be surprised by how much I'd grown. Eventually you looked "up" to me but I knew who was boss! You will forever be "The Boss" to me. You had a way of whipping me into shape and making me behave as I should (most of the time) and I loved you for it.
    I'm sorry that I didn't come to see you last summer, mom was going to take me on her next visit. I hope you enjoyed the photo album of our fun times together. I'm sorry that I made you work so hard getting me out of the boat at the cabin. I really can be a little sh*t. I'll miss coming out to the cabin and eating you out of house and home. Just an observation, I think you might have gotten softer with time because you did kind of wait on me at the cabin, just sayin'
    Good bye Boss,
    Big wet XX's and mauling OO's
