I only knew u for 4 weeks. We came from two different worlds and became friends. You talked my ear off and I listened. I did everything I could to help you. I wanted to see you get another chance. We would have remained friends. The only solace I can take is that your suffering has ended. You are free. You often spoke of trying to get back to see your grandmother. Your family should know that you tried desperately to work and not go backwards. That you could be trusted and had a sense of honor. I am better for having known you. Ad infinitum.
