3, almost 4 years later and I still tell stories about you to my friends and family. You held a place in my heart that was like a little brother to me. I don't understand how we got so close as I question myself every day about everything that happened. I constantly think that I could've stopped you but there was so many times where you said you were going to do it and you didn't and I payed God would take it into his hands and prevent your inevitable death. I loved you man. Even tho I only knew you for barely 2 months, I spent every day with you except for the occasional school days or days you were busy. Me and your sister-like best friend were destroyed the day you left usm I wish you were still here. I would've loved to see the amazing things you would've done. You always helped people, you were always creating things in your garage. Deep down I felt like you hated me for some reason and your family lied often about the things you said even when I was there right next to you so it's hard to trust them or myself. I just really loved you and I wish me and you could've been brothers until the end, and in a way you were, but not how I imagined. I miss you so much, JerrBear, forever your big brother 😔✨🕊️

I cant believe how long its been since he passed. I will forever miss him and there will never ever be a day where I dont pray to god asking that he protects Jerry up in the clouds. His heart was always in the right place and he helped me through so much. I wish I could have just had one more conversation with him. My prayers go out to all of his friends and family.

All we can do is Remember or Push the memory away, everyone says it gets easier but it doesn't it hasn't and I don't think it ever will.

It's been 10 months since you passed. I miss you at school. It's not easy. I know it can't be easy for your family members either. You were like a brother to me. And I miss you very much. I wish I could have one more moment with you. Or I wish I could have stopped you from suicide. Autumn misses you too. We're both struggling. It hurts. I cried all night once I found out you passed. I didn't even Want to go to school once I found out. But I had to because of my friends. I just wish you would have talked to me before you did it. But you know, we all can't get what we want. It hurts to know that I could have done something. I will miss my brother. I miss how you would always make people laugh and how are you were so protective over everyone. I love how you would never cause pain on anyone. Well, you didn't mean to. But I miss you so much, and I know I'll see you again. But it hurts so bad. Once you pass people kept telling me it was all my fault. Did I could have done something? That I'm the reason you committed suicide. I started taking those words to Heart. I started cutting myself. And I'm trying to become clean. But it's not easy. And I remember when you came over to the park. And we hung out for a while. And this creepy car was driving around very creepy and my sister was over. You walked us back to the house. And the next day you stood outside my window talking to me. It's hard to be in my room now. I'm releasing balloons on your birthday. And death day to Remember You it's hard. Can't believe it's almost been a year. You've been gone. I really can't wait until I see you again. I've been broken ever since you died.

I sure will miss you at the house this summer with the kids. I hate to see that you are gone so soon with so much life ahead of you. I am so sorry that you were hurting. I hope you see from heaven how many lives you truly impacted. You were such a kind boy. The girls would always come inside telling me how nice you were to them and how you was always protective of them. I remember you hesitating to let them do the bike ramp you made because you didn't want them to get hurt. I remember you always looking out for everyone else always. My life was blessed that I got to know you! You are truly going to be missed and our road will never be the same without you. We will miss you Jerry
