    This made me cry

    My best friend died 6years ago

    Today would have been his birthday

    I remember seeing his lifeless body just before he was buried

    That image I will never forget

    Rest In Peace Michael Emeka Owhor

      Sorry, about your loss, Dennis. I think I understand how it feels, because I’ve lost some people I love.

    I’ve never lost a close friend or “close” relative,but I’m sure it must be devastating.
    Rapum,u’re such a literary icon in the making…and to think u’re just barely out of ur teens! My mind snaps (…*ahem*…sorry pinky; I had to,lol) when I think of d amazing literary force u will become by d time u’re in ur late twenties.
