A few days ago, the sister of a girl I used to be very good friends with passed away. She was only 30. 4 years ago my aunt/ godmother passed away from a heart attach. She was only 42. Nancy was my mom’s youngest and favorite sister. Since they were so close in age they were very close and in case my cousin David and I, who are also closest in age, grew up very close as well. All my life I knew David was different… His father died when he was only 3 of a spider bite, and my Aunt Nancy never put David in school because she didn’t want him to be away from her. While this did him no justice, Nancy loved Dave more than anything in the entire world. Having never gone to school, having never had to take care of himself… I worry about my cousin David often. I hurt for my mom because I know she misses Nancy. I know that David misses his mom too. He’s only 21… he’s only 1 year older than me and I can’t imagine not being able to see my mom… and I’ve been on my own since I was a senior in highschool. There are so many things in this world that I wish I could change. Things that I wish I could make better. It’s a shame that so many people die at such a young age… A boy I knew very well died in a drunk driving accident a month after we reunited. A boy I went to school with my whole life would have been 20 this month, but he died 8 years ago of leukemia. For the sake of all the people I love… If there’s a rocknroll heaven you know they’ve got a hell of a band.
