“I’d like to start off by saying this post is not intended for karma. I created a throwaway (account) simply for this purpose of sharing the story of how greatly Tori impacted my life in such a short period of time. If you get anything from this, I simply hope you see this picture and take a brief moment to consider how fragile our lives are. I personally have never experienced a death close to home before this, and am still trying to cope with the fact that someone I held dear to my heart is gone forever and I never got to say goodbye. I’ve already begun reevaluating the priorities in my life and paying more attention to how I treat those around me. Simple things like saying I love you more often now hold great meaning to me. Being honest with my friends without fearing being embarrassed or feeling too emotional are now becoming more frequent in my day to day interactions. I doubt anyone is even reading this; the emotional ramblings of a depressed and confused boy at 2 a.m. But if by the off chance you are, I hope you think about Tori for a little bit. I hope you tell someone you love them. I hope you live a life as positive and impacting as hers. And I hope you never have to feel what I am right now.”
