"I'm never going to forget all of the laughs we had. I only got to know you for 2 years but I'm so glad that I got to know you at all. I've been thinking back to my year in WI all day and smiled at the memories I have with you. Like how we always used to tease each other back and forth and you would call me "stupid foreigner" and I would call you "dumb american" and we rolled our eyes at each other. I still can't imagine not getting to see you this summer. I wish I could tell you this in an other way than a facebook message, it still feels like you will be able to read it though."
R.I.P Joel, I love you and miss you.
