Condolences

  1. You departed so early?

    We met in Mrs. Dorsey’s art class sophomore year at Bryan High. Your personality was strong and I was defensive. I quickly learned that you were genuine in your actions.

    You brought down my wall of what I thought were fad phases…The Cure in particular. You recorded each tape you owned and wrote out the lyrics for me…by hand, because computers were a true luxury back then. You almost begged me to “just listen and give it a chance.” I did and found a bond with you, my new friend.

    Throughout HS I moved and came back, moved and came back. We lost touch and always regained it as though we had never been separated. Always meaningful conversation with you Tray. We last saw each other a couple years after HS before I moved away…again.

    Now you have moved…I will meet you again my friend so that you can show me how beautiful it is on the other side. Quoted…We die one after the other…it feels like one hundred years.

    My heart goes out to the Davila family. You have lost a shining star, but he will always gaze upon you. You will see Tray in God’s work.
