We never really took any pictures from the memories we’ve had. But that was because we had too much fun in those moments and it didn’t matter. At least I got those to hold on too. This one text message I have where you said you would look out for me until your last breath really hit home. You were like the big brother I never had. If there’s one thing I know about you is that you’re one of the realest, most genuine people I’ve ever met. You always made sure I was okay and gave me the best advice. I’m glad I got to call someone like you my friend. Thank you for everything.. the memories and all. I’ll never forget kidd!!❤️

hey man i hope your living it up, up there and watching over us, i want you to know that i love you from the bottom of my heart, you were one of a kind man... strong , smart, and always had a smile on your face that would light up anyone’s day! anytime anyone needed anything you were right there,its killing me that you had to go so early, it’s upsetting you didn’t get to see 21 but I promise your not missing out on anything! I broke down after I got that phone call and was in disbelief it still feels like a bad dream.. I wasn’t ready for this! None of us were. It’s going to be weird going to meets and not having someone come behind me and tapping me on my shoulder but when I turn no one is there because you always played jokes on me! Going to miss those hugs you would give when you seen me! This is the only picture we have together besides all the videos of you being your goofy self! Fly high man! Your going to be greatly missed by many! Goodbyes are not forever,goodbyes are not the end, they simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again! Now get your rest .❤️

The first time we met was when I was a sophomore we were in Ms. Migues’ math class - we talked about everything that was wrong in the world and about making mistakes and trying to fix them , and just real life stuff , you looked out for all your friends that were girls , you came into my life and brought nothing but smiles and laughter you made my math class a blast , you had an incredible heart . So when hearing the news it broke my heart , I’m sorry this happened but I know god gained another angel who will never be forgotten . So rest easy , I know you will be watching over all of us up there , I’ll keep you and your family and friends in my prayers 🖤

I remember when we first met I was a sophomore he was a junior. And was the nicest person ever we would always clowned in class and talk about real stuff that was happening in the world and in the hallways if he saw I was feeling down he would always know how to cheer me up then we would go to class when I saw this a minute ago I was shocked and started crying I can’t believe it he was coolest guy you could meet he will forever be missed. ❤️
