Troy Boy.

For years I was friends with this amazing guy Troy. He was always so much fun to be around. He was so strong and helped everyone out.
He was always smiley. I have never seen him cry. Only one time did I ever see him upset. 5 months ago he killed himself. He devastated the whole school. Everybody loved him. still does. He was the least expected person to see go like that.
I still miss him. I have learned so much from the loss of him. It just goes to show, you never know what's on the inside of someone. You can know someone your whole life and never see the signs.
I still remember when I found out...
My friend Conner was living with me at the time. His girlfriend texted him and told him what happened. I started crying but I couldn't believe it. I remember thinking no, not troy. Never him. He was always so happy...
I logged into facebook and immediately felt like I had been hit by a train. It was all over FB. There was no denying it. Even now it still seems so unreal that he's gone.
Seeing how hurt everyone is from him leaving us gives me the inspiration to keep on going even when I wanna quit. I seen how it affected his family, and I know I could never do that to mine. I could never hurt them like that.
I learned from it sadly. But I'm stronger now. I just wish he had been stronger too...

I am eternally grateful for having known him. He really made a difference in my life and in so many others' lives. I just wish he could have known how special he was to everyone and in this world. maybe he'd still be here if he knew....

Wow, real sorry about your loss couldn't imagine it..be glad though you were fortunate enough to befriend and know such an amazing person.
