A Letter to My Family and Friends
Well, I suppose if you are reading this, I am up here and you’re down there, so let’s get this party rollin’. I was out doin’ what I love last weekend – driving my car – and I made a mistake. I never thought it would turn out this way. Every one of us has made a decision that could have ended poorly and I know that – and we never know when that will happen.
Because I left you all so soon, I just have a few things to tell you all….some will know all this, some will not – just hang tight with me.
First, my family, who I love with all my heart, and a little bit about my life. I was born August 9, 2001 to Pat and Bridget in Phoenix, AZ. We didn’t live there long and moved to Omaha shortly after that. All my Grandparents were in the area and loved that they could see me more. Grandma GiGi, Gail, and my two Great Grandmas, Sam and Charlotte, are still there with y’all, but my Grandpa Rick, Grandpa Warren, Grandma Diana and my Great Grandparents, Emil, Dean, Alice, Ray, Marion, Fred and Eleanor, were all waiting for me when I got here. I grew up in Omaha and went to school there. School kinda sucked for me – some days I didn’t really see the point. I was smart and could do the work, but I was just kinda bored. I was kinda ornery, sorry Mom and Pops, and got in a lot of trouble. But, I worked my way through it, took my consequences and tried my best to learn and do better. When, I was about six, my sister Karlee was born. I loved being a big brother. We didn’t always get along, I guess it’s a “brother/sister” thing, but I love her. I loved spending time with my entire family – my Aunt Amy and Uncle Chris and my cousins Amanda and CJ; my Aunt Shannon and Uncle Michael and my cousin Riley. I have a pretty big family who loved me and saw me through some difficult times. I’ll just tell you their names so you can say “Hey” if you see them – Uncle Mike and Aunt Linda, Uncle Frank and Aunt Raya Jason, Heather, Brett, Justin, and Ashley (she was born just a month before me – pretty cool). Family – I am sorry I had to leave so soon. I love you all and thanks for loving me.
Second, my friends, you all kick ass. There are so many of you, that I would need a book to write them all down. Just know that if I called you “friend”, I meant it, you could count on me and you will forever be in my heart.
I was only on earth a short time, but I think I have things to do up here. Man, there are some sweet rides up here and the racetrack is killer!!! I had dreams of opening my own auto shop someday, but now I see I may have other important things to do. I will be watching out for each and every one of you. And please watch out for my Mom and Pops, I know they must be hurting right now.
Live your dreams, make mistakes (and learn from the them), love each other and ride on!
