It's a very small town, and everyone's really close.
My younger sister's friend (they graduated in '03) Got killed in a motorcycle accident while celebrating graduation.
There's this one kid...he graduated in '08 and he and I worked on a car together for an in town race....bad idea. On August 30, 2008; he died in a car crash at age 19.
Then just 4 months later...My close friend died of a drug overdose when he was 24.
There was this one kid...The really cool badass kind of kid. He was 20 years younger then me. He was just great, and I got to know him quiet well. On January 14, 2009; a call came over the scanner (I'm an ex-EMT. He was 15 years old, and got his windpipe crushed while snowmobiling.
