We bonded in high school over comic books and action movies not to mention just being goofy together. I wish we couldve had a few more laughs together brother RIP

The words any of us write will never say what we want to say, will never convey who you were or what you meant to us as a son, brother, friend or even that random person who you got to laugh for no reason at all. It sucks that your not here anymore. There is no eloquent way yo put it. Rest easy, no more struggles or worries. You will be missed.
