    Joey, I Will Always Love You.

    A few days ago I learned that my first love died. He was 33 years old. He had an 11 year old daughter. As I write this, my heart is a million pieces. I met Joey when I was 12 years old. Back then I was a little overweight, awkward and boys were the last thing I was thinking...

    The day I found out my first love died,

    I didn't believe it. We were both still in high school, though he wasn't attending anymore, and it just seemed so unreal to me. It took me a year to believe it, back in 2011, and I'm still kinda going through the stages of grief over it. I was only 15 when we started dating, but...
