I will always remember how your words would catch me off guard. On many occasions you could be so insightful, understanding, sincere, and full of wisdom beyond your teenage years. Thank you for your service to our country, and especially for the ability to make me look at the "truth of things, even if it is ugly".

Oh Ethan, this is how I'll always remember you. Thank you for being such an important part of my life. I miss you already We always laughed about how our friendship made it through all of life's obstacles, I'm heartbroken. I promise I'm going to get that tattoo like we planned.
