I found out that he committed suicide after going on the computer after being grounded and finding out that everyone gathered at the school's football field to remember him. He was a great friend to everyone. He made the one class we had together fun,he was a great teammate and made us laugh. I remember the day of his funeral.It was held at our school's gym and it was packed. Two of our teammate's(twins) mom picked me and brought me back home. After the funeral, we drove to the cemetery to watch him get buried. There wasn't a dry eye anywhere (trying not to tear up at the moment). He affected so many people's lives. I can't believe it has already been 8 years ;(
When I hear these two songs, I think about him:
"How Do You Get That Lonely?"- Blaine Larson
"Who You'd Be Today"- Kenny Chesney
