We were a part of the greatest, closest-knit graduating class in the history of Asheville High School, the immortal Class of 1982, so when one passes on, we all lose a big part of our own selves. I wish I had been able to see you more over the years, but you sure were blessed in so many ways. Maybe the greatest blessing, though, is how greatly you will be missed by everyone whom you touched.

Peace Ü
