Okay, as I informed my following base on Facebook, I would like to let you all know that I’m taking all of this coming week off. I know, bloggers don’t take weeks off, but I have to.
An incredible person that I was friends with passed away on Thursday in a tragic motorcycle accident only about 200 yards from my house. His name was Cole Cran, and he was going to graduate in May. He impacted everyone he met, and I don’t think he’ll be forgotten any time soon.
I’m so glad I got the chance to get to know him better this year, because all of this sadness and depression is worth it knowing I had befriended probably one of the most amazing, caring, generous, and funny people I will ever have the pleasure of meeting.
We can take consolation in the fact that he had many friends and lived a full life. He died doing what he loved, and safely, at that. To those who may think he was fucking around or not wearing a helmet, I can assure you that this is not the case. What happened was purely accidental, and that makes it easier and so much harder all at the same time.
Everyone who’s lives he touched will remember him forever, and so he lives on in memory.
We love you, Cole David Cran, may you Rest in Peace.
