I woke up this morning to see everyone on facebook saying their goodbyes to a good school friend of mine. I went right back to bed.
I don't "do" death. I never have. It scares me and I have no desire to die for a very long time. So, when I see people I know, that are my age and just trying to live the same way I am it hurts to see them be cut short. I've known Andrew since the 3rd or 4th grade. I had a SERIOUS crush on him in the 4th and 5th grade and then through out the years I'd randomly see him in school.In higschool I had hihim another class. Mr. G's english and again we connected and laughed and had so much fun! But, he'd be out of class a lot and miss school, I found out the reason was because he suffered from sickle cell anemia. If someone hadn't told me, I would never guess that Andrew was suffering from a life threatening disease. He had such a positive outlook and so much amazing energy that he could surely overcome ANYTHING! right?!
I haven't spoken to him in over 5 years. He added me on facebook a couple of months ago and from there we had our random "hey, how's it going" but we'll never have that again. I'm sure like most people, I'll stop by his page from time to time and say "hi" it's better late than never.
