I recently found out Tuesday afternoon that my best friend had passed away that morning. I was in a state of shock to hear this. He was only 21 and getting his life on the right track. The last time I ever heard his voice was in a voicemail he left me the Monday night. I can say that we had spoken Monday afternoon and thinking about it, I feel a bit better knowing that the last words he heard from me were ” i love you boo boo”.
It’s just horrible to know that he was murdered in his own home around 8:30 in the morning. He was beaten to death. Murderer is still on the loose. Apparently they suspect a few of his so called “friends” who were total drug addicts, that he countlessly tried to give the benefit of the doubt. It sickens me that someone who even do this.
It’s heartbreaking enough to find out through facebook. Even more so, beacuse he lived in Indiana, and I moved to Cali. Last time I saw him (other then over skype) was when he came out to California on a plane last May for the first time ever. We had the best time together.
All the memories we’ve shared will never be forgotten. I Love you baby boy. You are now free from stress and the drama and difficulties life has thrown at you.
