I knew Darius since I was a freshman in high school at Brooke Point. I have so many memories with and of him, it would be hard to share just one. It’s impossible to encompass who he was in just one memory. So many people have said he was a light. That he brought joy to others. I could share a hundred times Darius proved that to be true without even trying. Darius raised the people around him up. He was the hype that got us out of bed. The confidence we needed when we lacked it. He was a guide, and a confidant. He was always there and always supportive. He was the friend that everyone should have at least once in a lifetime, so they could know what true friendship meant. He was love and joy. I don’t know how to navigate this world without him, but I do think I know what he would tell me to do — to keep my head up, to “stay awesome”, to ignore everything else. The world was just better with Darius in it, so I will always carry his memory with me; so that the world will never forget him.
