Favorite Quote:
"Life for you has been less than kind/So take a number/Stand in line/We've all been sorry/We've all been hurt/But how we survive/Is what makes us who we are." -'Survive' by Rise Against

Many tears were shed today,

And many more will fall.
Cries were heard everywhere,

Except for yours.

Words cannot express our grief

Or our sorrow.
Silent mourning is the only thing we are capable of.

It’s the only thing we share.

We miss you terribly,

Your smile that livened up anyone’s day,

Your laughter that was contagious,

Your personality that shined brightly.

Why did you leave us?

Why did it end?

Why didn’t we know?

Why didn’t you speak up?

Rest in peace,

Poor soul,
Your death was an untimely end.

Forever, you will remain in our memories.
