"You were my best friend. I still can't get over the fact the the next time I come home, you won't be there to greet me like you always were. You and Mike were brothers to me. Your mom was like my second mother. You always did everything you could to help me and would go out of your way to help anyone. Even if they didn't ask for it. I hated sharing but you and I shared everything. Bikes, skateboards, we even dated some of the same chicks haha. You were an amazing guy. You never let me down. I've cried on your shoulder and we shared things with each other that no one else knows about. I miss you buddy. I'll miss you until the day I see you again. I know you'll be watching out for me and I couldn't ask for a better guardian angel. You have a beautiful family that I know you will be looking over too. Dakota Joe Harr, you were hands down the best friend that I could have ever had the privilege to know and love. I love and miss you so much buddy. Rest In Peace Brother."

"God man, I'm still waiting for you to call me like you always did almost everyday. You would just call no matter what phone you had access to just to see what was up. It was just the day before when we had the bikes in the "build-a-bike" work shop installing lights on my bike. And the random 75 mile you and I took around the country side. Its not the same riding without you, but I know you up there riding that ducati you always wanted. I love and miss you bro. Till the next ride, rest in peace brother."
