    listening to some old chorus music and thinking about you today. I know you’re smiling somewhere and judging me for tearing up to some old queens singing. Miss you friend.

    Ive thought a lot about you, though i have no memories of you because i was so young. My mom always told me that when you died you became a dragonfly my grandma says you became a cardinal. When i see either of those i think of you.
