I didn’t know you for that long. I didn’t know you that well. But I remember your presence and your energy and your smile and positivity and your passion and your capacity for fun. So I figured I would write something since your life touched mine as well.
we met in europe in 2013 or 2014. I live in California and you said you spent time there at cal poly SLO so my friends and I immediately hit it off with you and for a few days we shared that experience together. you were one of those guys that I met and didn’t forget. You were the life of the party. The kind of guy that I wanted to be like.
we stayed connected through Instagram and I was always happy to see that you were doing well. Of course you were.
Although I only knew you for a week, but I felt like if I really needed help I could ask you for it and you would treat me like you would a long time friend. You just had that vibe. That kind of unconditional compassion for people.
I want to express my deepest sympathy to your family and your friends. Your life made an undoubtable impact on the world. Your memory lives on in my heart.
until our paths meet again, Maddy.
