  5. John and I met when we were 12 yrs old, growing up on tobacco farms that connected. We quickly became close friends. We were inseparable from there on. Our friendship only grew closer over the years. I do not have words for what I am feeling right now. We went through thick and thin together. He was undoubtedly my best friend. I thought I lost him when he went to the west in search of work. Anyone who had ever met or worked with him knew there was not a better man. There is a void in me that will never be filled. We enjoyed wings, beers and neverending laughs. I will never meet a better friend, we always had each other’s backs. Ride on brother! Because I am happy the ride that I went through with you through life could not have been better! You will always be in my heart and in my thoughts, love your brother Big Dutch.
