I had the honor of crossing paths with M.D. during our journeys in life. Such a joy to be in the presence of this loving human. M.D. has a huge heart that allows him to have unconditional love for many and I just so happen to be one of those many people. I love you dearly M.D. and may you rest in peace. Until I see you again my friend
