I hate this happened to you & may you rest in peace & no longer suffering with addiction, which is a BEAST, & so hard to beat!! I'll see you on the other side one day!! Forever you will be missed
Over the last few days, I have been having a hard time trying to come up with words to express how much Tim Reed meant to me. With any relationship there were always good times and bad. With Tim, I would mostly laugh. He was always a giant goofball. I met Tim when I was 13 in 8th grade. You know those coming to age movies? Tim and I made our own. From there, 22 years of nothing but love for each other came from it. We had a uncanny way of gravitating back to one another if we had lost contact. I remember when I was 14 and I went to his house for christmas, he asked me if i was ready for my gift. I smiled and nodded at him. He rushed out of his room only to be walking back in backwards dragging this monstraousty of a box back into his room. All while staring at me with a huge grin on his face. I started to open the box only to find another box. About 10 boxes later, I finally find a tiny little box inside. I opened it to find a small gold ring with a diamond heart on it. It was his way of being romantic. I'm sure emma had to clean the mess up later. I put that ring on and never took it off for many years. When we would sit in class he would always scoot his desk next to mine to grab my arm and doodle all up and down it. Sometimes in permanent marker. I knew then he would be a great tattoo artist. Tim, you were my first love and for that you will always have a piece of me, as I will of you. You taught me a lot: how to love, how to hate, how to trust a boy, how to not trust a boy, and now your teaching me to let go. "Let it be" For all of these things, I am completely grateful. I will always love you, Tim Reed. I send my love to your family.
