Leave an Eulogy or Condolence for David Allen Poe

Had a dream about you last night, Al, and it put you on my mind. You were one-of-a-kind, for sure, and one of the best friends I've ever had. You never judged me or treated me badly. You were always there for me when I needed someone to talk to. I remember the way you'd tease me, taking advantage of my gullible nature, but always for fun and never to hurt me. A lot of people would have something bad to say about you, but I know you, Al. I know you lived by the golden rule. If anyone ever said you were mean to them, they need to ask themselves what they did to you to deserve it, because you were one of the most thoughtful and tender hearted people I've known. I miss you, Al. But you'll always be with me, because I will never forget you.
