Our community lost a young life today. Son, brother, friend, and so much more to many, he will be dearly missed. He left this earth too soon.
Although I did not have the privilege to know him personally, I am deeply saddened by his passing. He lived on the same street as me. We had a few classes together in middle school. I saw him every once in a while, waiting for the bus, or simply walking down the street. It is devastating knowing that he was hurting enough inside to take his own life.
My thoughts go out to his family. I cannot imagine what they are going through at this time. Rest in peace, Colin. Your memory will live on forever in the hearts of many.
