Recently I lost one of my best friends. There are no words that will ever come close to how tragic this is for everyone who knew him. It was so unexpected and we didn’t see it coming. I wish he would have let us know how he was feeling, he shouldn’t have had to suffer in silence for so long. We will never know if this could have been prevented, we won’t know if there was anything we could have done to help him.
Dan was the first person to talk to me when I started boarding school, we was in the room next to me and he made me feel welcome and introduced me to his friend and made me a part of their clique. He was an amazingly kind boy and he put everyone before himself. There is going to be a big hole in our group now that will never be filled.
I’m sad that we didn’t have much time together but the time we did spend together was great. I feel so lucky to have traveled places and different continents with you, seen things with you and all the memories I have with you, they are the best memories I have. I can’t believe I will never see your smile or hear your laugh ever again. Words can’t ever explain how much we will miss you. We won’t ever forget you. I’m sorry you had to suffer on your own.
This is the only photo I have of us together on my computer, it’s really crap but this day was perfect. We laughed so much and I had no worrys that day. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life. I owe so much to you. We’re all looking out for your family and taking care of them as best as we can for you.
Rest in peace Dan. I can’t wait to see you again.
Something bad has happened. Please bare with me. Xxxxx
