To my Cousin Ricky.
We didn't spend much time together because of our distance but the time we did have been and always will remain good memories. Thank you for taking the time to teach me to surf. You instilled in me the confidence skill to stand up for the first time. I will always remember that day even though I took a good spill.. lol
You were a survivor here on earth.
