John was my friend since I was 14 and he was 19 when his mother moved next door to my parents. He was this amazing man and I miss him a lot. I miss his smart-ass comments, his willingness to get down on the floor with the pets, his pleasure over a simple meal and his obsessive collecting. 🙂 John was the first person I came out to and he was just so great when I was confusing myself. The death of a friend who is 41 is just mind-blowing. Rest in peace, my friend.
