Mr. Conners, I will never forget you! You will always be in my heart. You are one the only people that I know that when we joke around everyone around us would laugh to the point when we all tear in the eyes of laughter! Tears of JOY! Today the tears... were tears of missing you! I try not to cry the tears of sadness, because you would not want that! I will try to be positive and cry in the love of fun and friends! Thats what I know you would want! God bless your family and friends. Frankie 'THE CROW"
