7 Years

It has been seven years and you are still missed Collin.  A few of the many things that I regret I cannot do anymore...
  • head to your house to watch movies, play Halo, or even cleanse your computer of its latest demon viruses.
  • play Beruit with you or against you
  • head to the Milford Rec and play some Golden Axe with you.
  • head to the Square One theater to see your latest play
  • sing those crazy skull lyrics to Canned Heat's Going Up the Country with you.
  • walk under that laughing skull in the doorway to your kitchen and have a cold Killian's.
  • read your Grimm Lore and come up with new lore with you
  • laugh as you torment my poor Mom with your crazy responses to "What are you guys up to tonight?"
  • quote the crazy cultists from Blood together at one of the many parties at the Duva house.
  • piss you off by telling you that "When I left you, I was but the learner; now I am the master." during a Beruit game.
  • do that "Grimm Chin" thing we used to do when we met at Ruby Tuesday.
  • Shake your hand one more time. 
 By the way, I write these entries for myself but if someone happens across any of these posts, please send me an email at paulvreilly@gmail.com.  As close as I was to Collin in the last few years of his life, I still feel like there is a ton I just don't know about him.  I'd love to hear any stories or grab a copy of any pictures or writings you may have from him.  Even if it's just a word to let me know that you were thinking of him too, don't hesitate to send me that email.

God Bless you and rest in peace mighty MOJ!
