keeping afloat


I wrote this post earlier but it doesn’t seem to be showing up with the other posts…

I am still in shock. I keep thinking I am hearing his voice and I think I hear his footsteps, all 195 lbs of him. He was a giant. In so many ways. In his character, in his physical stature, in his maturity. I think he tried somewhat to act like a high school student; because every kid wants to fit in. Yet it wasn’t really him. He was a giant among boys.  He didn’t laugh at the misfortune of others. I truly believe he would have been friends with anyone if they had accepted him. Sometimes a bit of shyness held him back. A bit of self doubt. Yet there was so much love in his heart for everyone. His character was truly one in a million. It’s not fair. It’s just not fair.
