Hey Rick. The fond memory we share is of when I impersonated a political centrist and introduced myself to you as such. I recall you and your friends having an interesting discussion on politics, and I didn’t want to scare you away with my right leaning views. It didn’t take you long to figure out the deception, but you were gracious enough to keep me on as a friend. We’ve shared many intellectual, social, and political discussion since and as a friend you’ve been there, at the drop of a hat, whenever I needed a shoulder to lean on. My life is richer with you in it so keep fighting, my friend, so we can continue a friendship that has caused me to grow both intellectually and spiritually.
