  16. This is unreal to me! As I am sure it is to u. I just want to say how deeply sorry I am for your loss. I CANNOTT imagine what you all are going thru rn. Chad was a sweet, fun loving, guy and his smile and laughter were so contagious. He and I were not together that long, but we dated a few years back. He was so caring and kind, and stepped up for my daughter in her dead beats absence without hesitation. We always remained friends but life brought us seperate ways. I wish it wasnt true. I checked in with him a few weeks back to see if he was alright. I just never thought I would hear this news. I will be forever greatful for the time we spent and the memories made. My heart out to all of u! Especially Jacob. If there is anything I can do at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out. May he be at peace now. Big hugs to u all.
