    I’d only known him a few months. Our paths had crossed before, but I didn’t get to really know him until recently. We shared the same vision for our lives. Even though our music was completely different. He was instrumental in helping me believe in what I was doing. I pray that he felt the same way about me. Legitimately, one of the most solid, generous, kind, and, just overall, special souls I’ve had the honor of knowing. And I don’t know what happens after this plane, but, whatever it may or may not be, I pray he’s at peace and making the kind of music this world didn’t have the privilege of hearing. You were, and will always be, one of the good ones. Gone too soon, my brother.
