I can't believe you're gone, Odarri. Somewhere in Heaven, up in the clouds. I felt you pat my back last night when I thought of you and started crying. It must have been you and started crying. It must have been you who walked past me when I felt that chill after being so cold. You fought as much as you could but it was time for you to go home. I don't think of your death being a lost battle, but a time for God to carry home His angel.
The world is just not the same without you here. You've left us so early. It just doesn't seem right that you're not next to us in class, or breakdancing with the rest of the team, or putting smiles on our faces with your randomness that we'll miss. We loved you more than you could even comprehend. Odarri, you may be gone physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually, you are still with us. Thinking of all the good times we've shared, the conversations we've had and all other beautiful moments, brings back the smile to my face. I've never had such final closure to someone that was close to me in age or just plain... close.
