After your death, I realized that life’s too short to hold onto grudges and so much anger. I have try to mend all the broken friendships that I hope to fix and was worth my time. I’m so hurt that you were taken away at such a young age. You had so much going for you. You were an amazing person with the most contagious smile and the most flowy hair.
It’s been hard this past week. I haven’t been able to sleep because every time I close my eyes I can see your smile and hear your long board pass the suites. Every time I drive off campus and look towards the quads, I can picture you riding on your long board with the biggest smile on. Your talent is incredible. I will never get the chance to cheer for you from the benches on how amazing you are playing on the court. I can never scream, “Noonys!!” Who am I going to share my special “Wong juice” with now? No one’s going to ask me, “What’s in the Wong juice?”
It’s crazy how your world can change so fast. In a snap of a finger, you never know what is in store for you next. Every time I walk into the cafe for lunch or dinner, I’m looking for you with all the rest of the basketball team. The days have been longer knowing that I won’t see you walking down the halls, in the cafe, or in Suite O for parties on the weekends.
I miss you Clark. And I know that smile is shining down on all of us because you have brought amazing weather this past week. I just wanted to let you know you will forever be missed and loved. No one can take that place in our hearts ever. Even if I was never your best friend or someone close to you, you have impacted me so many ways. I am so lucky to have known such an amazing, talented, happy man like you.
I’ll be seeing you again Clark. When we do meet again, I promise I will bring a cup of Wong juice with me so we can enjoy it together!
