I remember when we became friends in 8th grade. I was amazed by your artistic ability but more so by your friendliness. I'll never forget when you drew me a picture of Mariah Carey so I could give it to her at her concert. You showed so much care towards the little things I cared about. That is what I call a compassionate heart. I will be praying for your family and I hope they can find comfort in the midst of such tragedy.
