|R.I.P. Vance, it was way too soon.|
I tend to curse Facebook for the downfall of a lot of things, but its amazing ability to reconnect people is something I can't deny. Vance had moved to Oklahoma and started a family, but he managed to find me last summer and we remembered hilarious old times in school in a huge string of comments that night. I loved seeing all the pictures of his family and imagining how much of a fun dad he must be.
He was in a motorcycle accident last Sunday, leaving him with a broken neck. He passed on Tuesday. Such a huge loss for so many people, his Facebook profile is absolutely inundated with as much love as there is grief. You'll be deeply missed, dude </3
A candlelight vigil is being held for Vance and two others we lost this month, Blaine Kranz and Chris Taylor at Twin Rivers Park in Arlington on Tuesday, May 29th at 8pm. The Facebook event with a map and info can be found here. All are welcome.
