Jt was definitely someone I care about. We just started being good friends, because I've known him from high school. Im so devastated that he had to leave so soon.
We were trying to call each other and hangout a few days before his passing. I really looked forward to catch up because it's been about a few years since I last hung out with him but now it's too late. I'm amazed of how much he's grown since then. He has such a great spirit and he always had so much heart. His personality was unique, and I'm def going to miss him . I just wished I got to hangout with him before this happened. My condolences go out to his family and close friends. I keep the good memories of him alive in my heart.
