I have never had a better friend, a more honest and straight forward person in my life than this young man.
At age 16 he had more character and sincerity than any adult and anyone I have ever been a part of their lives before ever. He said what he meant, and he did not hold back. He didn't aim to please the people in the phony society that he lived in. If he had something on his mind, he let you know. If he disagreed with something, he voiced his opinion. He was an avid blogger, and a quick thinker. In every way, I could see him living an amazing life, full of vigor and disruptive and innovative accomplishments.
It's terribly sad to me that I lost him so long ago at such an early age. He was too much for this world, and this world had too little to offer him.
