I lost my best friend Matt in the beginning of 2017. I will be perfectly honest with you I’m still not over his death. The little things he did like text me randomly but it was the way he worded stuff in messages: WAzzzzup, DJuuust how’s it hanging , how goes it!
Matt & I met at St.Vincent-St.Mary’s we were both in study hall at the time. What sparked a conversation between him and I was the fact I glance over at his iPod during study hall he was listening to Lil Wayne. I gently pulled the sleeve of his shirt to get his attention.
Hey dude are you a fan of Lil Wayne ?
He responded back in a way only Matt knew how to by saying yupperz! The name of the song was Fireman.
Matt’s favorite song by Lil Wayne.
I asked Matt two questions that day in study hall:
- Who was his favorite rapper off all time?
His response for his favorite rapper of all-time was 2pac ! Matt’s favorite song by 2pac was the song Hail Mary.
- Matt’s In your spare time when your not in school what’s is your favorite thing to do? He answered was playing basketball, and working out.
Matt and I had so much in common we were both obsessed with pizza and loved playing basketball, and listening to music.
We also had things that separated us from one another like he could be a bit more a risk taker then me . Matt is a die hard Cleveland Cavaliers fan.Then I was a die hard La Lakers fan.
Matt liked paintball. I didn’t like paint ball. The differences/similarities our what make friendships so beautiful and special.
The thing is back in high school I lost his number like six times before finally writing it down. I still wonder every day how did Matt convince me to go Skydiving!
I’ll always cherish the memories close to my heart. Will always be best friends, and brothers.
