  7. He was absolutely the best son anyone could possibly have, we are so proud of him and miss him always, Son I so hope you knew that! WE MISS YOU!

  8. He was the first person I fell in love with. I have nothing but good memories of him. I actually didn’t know him very well… just how he interacted with me. I didn’t try to ask him a lot of personal questions because I thought he and I would be together forever. Haha, ah, young me…. He disappeared in 2014. I didn’t know his last name so I couldn’t find him online to find out why. Today, I found a number he gave me way back that was out of order at the time, added it to my contacts, and synced my phone contacts to FB and found his profile. I wish I found it sooner. From what I read from those who loved him, it seems I missed out on someone special. I want to go back in time and reconnect with him. I want to know him even better than I did when we were together. He’s the first person in my life I cared about to have died. I can’t wrap my head around not being able to talk to him again. I feel like something special was taken from me and I haven’t spoken to him in 4 years. I wish I could have at least been at his funeral. It would be both the first and last time I got to see him in person, but at least I would have finally saw his face in front of me. I never got to video chat with him, didn’t even get to talk to him on the phone. I never even heard his voice. What does it sound like? This all feels so odd…. I’m so sorry for all those who lost him. I pray you will all heal soon. God bless <3
