It seems like we’re too young to mourn a friend who died.
The moment that I heard, like everyone else I just cried.
I think about the silly things that he was always known to do.
If bursts of laughter were heard, he was around the corner, we knew.
“Could you help me with my homework? Why does it have to be so hard?
If there is one person I hate on this campus her name is stinkin’ ___.”
A heart as big as the smile he always put on and wore
A best friend to so many, he had friends by the score.
It never failed when we were in a public place on any given day,
He’d just start talkin’ to anyone and everyone who even looked his way.
He was always weldin’ on Lola or those fancy hydraulic chutes,
He had the number of every girl in the state if they were at least semi cute.
Ah, he could always cheer us up with the goofy quotes we grew to love
Like “How exactly is a rainbow made? How exactly does a positrack rear end on a Plymouth work? It just does.”
How about, “The road goes on forever and the party never ends.”
But let’s not forget the lesson we’ve learned from our Lusk friend.
People are only in our life for a second and then they are no more.
So instead of getting caught up on gossip or jokes or the war,
Lets make sure the people we love, know where they’re going when
The things of this world pass away and this chapter comes to an end.
I’ll leave you to mull this over, I sure hope that you do.
Bruegger we’re praying for your family. For impacting our lives, thank you!
