Im sitting here posting this after the major fanfare sitting here missing you man. Im sitting here with a gaping hole in my heart for the man who once helped me out of the darkest time of my life. You called me to get up on my feet. To stop being helpless, to start living and start speaking. To start living again. I thank you for teaching me so many lessons. You not only picked me up from the dark once but twice. You were an angel with the face of chaos. Beautiful chaos. You had a house inhabited by dogs you rescued that tore every inch to shreds but you loved unconditionally. Every friend you had was almost just the same. We all came broken and you helped us all. You were perfectly imperfect in so many ways. You were one of the most kind souls Ive ever met. I havent even started in on how amazingly funny you were too. I remember going to dinner and you pretended to be blind and ashed all over the table. Only you could come up with the funniest stunts man, and we were all always on board to play along with ya. You were so smart too. You always had so many angles of looking at things, I saw you poke through ideas and almost look at every possible side to analyze different scenarios of things. And then your stories- Candyland, and all of the vividness you used to paint so many pictures and tell so many stories will forever be treasured in my heart. I will miss you my dear friend. Hope youre with mom somewhere causing a ruckus. Ill be there one day to see you my friend. Love you swampy.
