"Always had a hard time wanting to visit Eddie & found myself cowardly refusing it due to the pain & memories from that day," Mysterio wrote. "Finally this past Monday, after 13yrs, I had the courage to visit him and have a one on one moment with him.... & .......exactly what I feared of happening, happened. Memories from that day were flashing through my head but his presence was much stronger and was able to cope and maintain my composure."
