I will remember you. Will you remember me...
I miss you man. You should’ve stayed a little longer. You would’ve been happy to see the day.
It still hurts remembering reading your last post. Knowing I was late, hoping I could still do something. Hating myself that it wasn’t enough. Still hoping that you’d be alright, and breaking down when I saw you were gone.
No I don’t hate you for leaving so soon. I never hate the people I love. I hate myself for not reading the signs. I never thought you were hurting that much. I never thought you were dying inside.
I miss you Ken. We never talked much, but your smile and laugh stuck with me. You would’ve done a lot more. You would’ve made the world a better place.
I know you’re happy where you are now, bathing in the sun, surrounded by angels. I don’t really believe in God, but I hope He’s there with you too.
I’ll see you soon man. I’m still in hell and fighting my own demons… and others. I still don’t understand what made you do it, although I’ve understood what drove you to it.
Rest in peace Airman. This Marine still misses you.
