Jake and I became friends 18 years ago, during our senior year of high school. Over the years, girls came and went, addresses changed, our hairlines backed up, and our waist sizes increased, but we always stayed in touch. He gave the best man speech at my wedding in 2006, and I returned the favor at his wedding in 2008. He was my brother from another mother, and the only person I've known for that long that I've never gotten into a single arguement with. Jake, you were the best friend I could possibly have asked for and I truly miss you. Rest in peace.
