You were one of the three lost that night in May. As I get older my mind goes to you three more and more. I could spend a long time thinking, "Why that position and not the other?" I know now, that is the way things are and they cannot be changed .
There are some things that you should know. You will alway be a Screaming Eagle and as long as men from the Zero-Deuce remember, you will be a part of us until the day the last of us die.
