    I met Jack in high school at a Christian summer

    camp. I certainly had an interest in him, but at the time my mind was set on the idea that all relationships end. My mind told me that all relationships end in either in marriage or a broken heart and I wasn't ready for either, so I played very hard to get. This I still believe...

    I'm in complete shock and I have no idea what to say to his friends and family. I'm in another country so I can't physically be with them to grieve.. I don't think it's really hit that its true anyway. He was only 21 and I can't even express how much of a genuine and funny guy...

    When you lose someone,

    you try to remember the last time you saw them. And most of the time it's a blurry memory, because at that last time you had no idea it would be the last.

    Due to some pretty different circumstances.
