don't know how to say this...

I'm going away for a little bit. No, this is not an April fools joke.

My good friend has passed away. I've known his since 3rd grade, went on a bunch of trips together, worked together, graduated together.
He was studying abroad in Rome, and fell off a balcony. I do not know any other details than that. He was the nicest guy to be around, always had a smile on his face wherever he went. This kid was one of a kind, and an even better friend.
Please send your prayers to his family

RIP Connor Redd.

thank you all, I really do appreciate the support.
It is just so sudden, this kid was the nicest and most respectful person I've ever met. I am trying to remember the good times we had together. I just cannot believe my friend is gone.
Here is his highlight video from highschool, Connor was goalie (he went on to play for St. Marys in California)


I'm packing to go back home. Thank you all again, you guys mean a lot to me.

Loss is probably the worst thing to deal with in life but it makes life more precious. Be strong RB, be strong for his family. Not to be completely cold but learn something from this. Remember the good times, he will live forever in your memory. Take care, be solid.

It is a fact of life that when we enter this world the count down begins.Look at it this way my friend,when a plant dies off its little seeds take flight to generate life somewhere else.Keep this in mind,knowing that possibly his passing has created life elsewhere and the innocence of his being is now growing into someone or thing that is as beautiful.I will never think that we just die and thats it.The spirit of life is too strong to be hindered by lack of a physical presence.Celebrate his life,cry in his passing,just don't forget that at this time there is a new beginning in his name somewhere.Give our regards to his family and you be strong for them RB-and yourself as well.
