Life is short
No matter how hard they fight
Addiction is a battle from the Inside
Iv had to many of my ppl die
Gotta find the time to try
To do things right in life
Got to change your ways
before it's to late
Before all our best friends
Are waiting at the gate
Don't make the mistake
Plz Stay away even if it the pain to great...We have lost our own family this way...
CaseyClark....he was a good friend to many and always had a good heart
Another young life lost to the fight
It was a shock everybody
But nobody seen the light
I miss you forever Buddha
We will see you when The time is right
Jessica Young..she always said to stay away from the H..now she in the grave and she was like a sister in my day...showed me a few things about the game...i love you sis ..till we meet again..
Donny Hastings ...he could have stayed away..but he loved to chase the beast.. But he always kept it real with me..may you rest in peace...
Evan Conway ...always had my back no matter the situation...life cut short by his own blade..a sad way but he thought it was the only way to take away the pain...i miss you everyday
brother wish you would have called me before that ever took place...
Tanya Fenske..was a friend since 15 and Her family is close to me cuz they good ppls...but she was a queen to Bundy we miss her too buddy...may she rest in paradise free from the stress of life...
TamaraLynnCarvey...she had alot of family hurt from this tragety...i did not know her but I'm sure she had a good soul inside her...she lost her way
And everyone learned a lesson today
Life is precious and can be taken away she could have did anything she wanted too...so brave.. wish she could have seen a better way...another young soul gone away...rest in peace we will see you again someday...sweet angel
@Bryan fillingham...he was a strong man always willing to give u a hand If had his back..one day he took to many... left behind his child looking for daddy...but he's only a memory...if he would have known the agony he would have never hurt Kasey or his baby... Rest easy old friend you will see me again in the end
Paul McGinley ..loved by many loved to drive a chevy..untill that tragedy on cr3 that took away another teen...he had big dreams that were never seen and lots friends that will never forget that accident
zach parker only knew him a few weeks... seemed a good kid to me..
Died in a crash on cr63
Had a pregnant girlfriend name Jennifer Burdick...she was a good person who left behind a beautiful baby Ella
Tragic accidents leave us askin them hard questions like what the hell happen?
MISSING COREY WILLIAM BONNIE..
Heart problems from the jump
But had a bigger heart than anyone
He would cheer you up
Just by one look
Only the good die young Life sucks
Why god take away the good ones
If felt you were family he would help you listen to Dave Mathews
While doin pills in the bathroom...
Seems to be a good dude to me
Just took to many
But we all see where that leads
Sad to see but hope you rest in peace Dougie...
Nick Hartkopf ...
Can't believe we lost you buddy
I've known you for close to 20
Never did any dirt to me
2 we lost in 1 week
I hope everybody sees
Drugs really are deadly
And extremely addicting
If you don't take it easy
The same day they put one in the grave
Another one of our friends gets taken away.........
