  15. Todd, Kim, and Mrs. Keesee. I wanted you to know that my thoughts are with you. I will never forget the powerful conversations that Eddy and I had when I lived in Rockwall several years ago. All of my neighbors used to think I stayed in trouble with the Law as Eddy would always double park his squad car in front of my house. He used to laugh at me when I would tell him to be a little less obvious of who he was visiting. I treasure the time we had and his friendship. What a great guy!
