  18. Veronica says:

    I miss you so much Alec, I only knew you for a year but we had more in common and got along better than people I’ve known for 20. I wish things would have worked out differently, we were just talking about favorite movies a couple weeks ago. I never got to tell you how much I loved Donnie Darko after seeing it. I never got to tell you a lot of things. And now I never will. I hope you’re at peace wherever you are. Nobody can ever replace you in this world and I’m never going to forget you. You accepted me for who I am so readily and that’s so rare.

    Love Always,
