Last week a childhood friend of mine passed away. Growing up we played music together throughout elementary, middle and high school. Alex was one of my musical role models. I can remember Alex displaying a natural talent and ability to play the guitar and any instrument he could get his hands on. As time went by we grew apart. In recent years he began having some troubles.
You are loved and you are missed. Thank you for being my friend all those years ago and thank you for inspiring me to become a musician. Meeting you changed the course of my life. I wish I had made more of an effort to keep in touch with you, especially when times were tough. My heart is broken. I don’t think any of us will be the same without you here.
