    So sorry for your loss. I was a classmate with him. I never got to know him very well, but he seemed
    like a nice young man. I haven't seen him at all since school graduation. I didn't know he had a
    facebook page until I just put his name in, and it popped up.....didn't get to see anything, it said it was
    all empty, no pictures, no history or anything....I wish I would have found him on facebook
    I would of known about what he did after H. S. such as kids, no kids, etc....I did talk with him before
    one of the class reunions trying to convince him to come....but he didn't come(at that time I'm pretty
    sure he was not on facebook) or I would have friended him then. We have lost so many classmates
    already . So sad!!!
