Got some pretty sad news

I just went over to the store for some coffee and chips but as we were joking around at the till, I saw a condolences card and asked who it was for as I picked it up to sign it.

They told me it was a young guy that was just a little kid when we moved here. He was murdered near Fort McMurray at 17 years old.

I hadn't seen him in many years but remember him being a really good, friendly kid. He was always wanting to help and talk about anything. Like he just wanted a friend to listen to him. I remember him playing with Mohit, a nice Sikh kid that lived across the street from me and the two of them were always laughing and having a great time.

I know people are murdered all over the world all the time, and from the sounds of it, this fellow went down a dark path, but all I can think about is him helping to serve lunch at the senior's housing and his big smile as he told us all about going moose hunting, and how exciting it was.

I don't know. I just feel really sad and it's hard to hold back the tears. I guess I don't need to.
