To My Friends Old and New, I John Thank You!
After Years of having this page I realize that only a few lines do not do justice to the people that are named... but it's so hard to think of the right words for people so dear to my heart.
Christy AKA Shortie, My sister... Quisty... I've taught you all I can but you have to grow up too, my dear sister, watch out, the real world isn’t such a happy place, but thank god your a tough fighter too. My sister, how I will always look after you and love you.
Rich AKA Rich, My Friend, my Brother. You really have been there all my life. We
argue on many views and how to go about our lives but that’s what we do
and how we are, we are friends because we can argue and see past each others
faults, and that’s how it should really be.
Eric, andKenrick, Old buds... hey sooner or later we need to catch up.
Candy, AKA The Starving Artist, For as long as I can remember our families have been friends, and we've looked out for each other as if we really were family. We often forget that your older then me, but I will always treat you with the love and loyalty as I give to my Own sister.
Linda AKA Lil Lin , Lin, my youngest sister. I've been around all your life. I know how you cried when you saw me come home from bootcamp and saw how different I looked. I don’t know if you really understand how special you are to me, out of all of us you are the baby, and I'll always be one of your older brothers.
Jen, Christine, and Derek,
Thomas, Tom, You are one of the people I trust most, going on almost 9 years now. You have gone your path and I have mine, but I know we'll still keep in touch, and look, I'm not dead yet.
Angel , I'll figure out something to say sooner or later.

Nat (PKO), You are my friend, I'm always happy to run into you and see you. You just seem to be one of the staple people in my life, and you don’t know how refreshing that is.
Bondy AKA Bon Bon, It’s been close to 15 years since we first met you know. You've known me longer then anyone that’s not family... granted there was that 6 years where we didn’t see or hear from each other... but I kept my promise didn’t I? I told you it wasn’t the last you'd see of me then, and I'm still here now.
Jen, My cousin, we never used to talk but that’s changed as well. Your one of the smartest people I know I'm gonna need a hand in collage since I'm a 20yr old freshman… but much like you I’ve accomplished much to be proud of.
Agata AKA Minsoo, I hope your well, I'm grateful for your letters. You should have been a Marine you know, but we all serve in our own way.
