You were someone’s son, someone’s brother, someone’s nephew, someone’s cousin, someone’s friend.
You were not just a tragedy waiting to happen.
You were not a wasted life.
You are not the addiction that killed you.
You are not the body so carelessly dumped for someone to find.
You were funny, you were serious, you were handy, you were willing to help when you could. You were caring,
You were troubled, you were at war with your demons.
You were hurting and hid it well.
We are hurting for having lost you.
We can’t turn back the clock to warn you that this time would be the last.
We can remember and love you.
We can rejoice knowing you are in HIS love.
You are someone’s son, someone’s brother, someone’s nephew, someone’s cousin, someone’s friend.
You are finally at peace.
Rest in love.
