    I have nothing but good memories when I think of you Amber, I saved those notes you used to leave on my windshield when you worked next to me, I’ll share them when I come across them again. I wish we would have had more time living in the same area- I’d do anything to ride around with you and the music up again. How young and completely care free we were! I know you’re looking out for us now. I love you!
