jared, i didn’t get a chance to meet you. but i cried for you. and i miss you for some strange reason. khail, franny, and i were stunned, frustrated, shocked, and bewildered by the news, and it hit us hard. you were our age. and it could’ve been any of us.
but we’ll do you proud. i’ll do well on my final tomorrow, i’ll love everybody i know harder, and i will continue to be compassionate and encouraging. my heart and my tears will continue to go out to those i hold dear on your behalf. for the measure of a man is determined not by what he does, but by the way he reacts to the things that are done. and we will live and love for you.
i hope you liked that song buddy. rest in peace.
