My pal. I wish you knew how special you were.
You were kind and genuine and talented and hilarious. I could talk to you about anything. I’m going to miss you.
When I got my tryout you were one of the first people I told. I’d pick you up and we’d drive to Bray together, talking… pic.twitter.com/CsFAQQcsNw
