Why'd you take the radiator and fans out. A little more room? Camming up the engine

Unreal Man. Sorry and Prayers for the Family. Funny how some people get so wrapped up in stupid **** and forget we have one go around of this place and no second chances. Nor the pain and anguish they put those around them through.

He made a choice Man. you can't change it. And though it hurts (Been there many times in my life) The best thing you can do is keep yourself together and be there as the one who comforts the rest through this. Keep the good memories alive and do you bet to keep all positive.
