Sumnal I still can't believe you're gone. I don't want to believe it. Going into work won't be the same without you. I remember always talking to you when you were on break vaping, or down at the plaza. I've worked with many over my 7 years and you were easily one of the best guards and friends I've met. I'll miss us giving each other a hard time and you calling me Steven Seagal. Every one has bad days at work, but not you. I never had one unpleasant encounter with you nor had one negative thought about you. Rest easy #809. Condolences to the family. - your friend Tyleryler aka #871
