FRIENDS KILL FRIENDS WHEN DRIVING DRUNK OR ON DRUGS

where do i start man.. we met during little league all stars and been tight ever since, our parents would always enjoy the games, families were close and more. we survived on that team with me you guilfred and eric. I remember when we had a tournament in monroe and we were sitting in the outfield bored as all get out. Once high school hit, it just got better, freshman football was hilarious but i feel like baseball was the funniest. before a game you were pitching bp and took one right in the stomach and flexed it off. or even the time you came to my house with an extra tv and your xbox just so we can play all night ..you always brought laughter, respect and kindness to the table. i would always go to costco ants your mom how you were doing and all. I’m gonna miss you man, it wont be the same

 

Heartbroken to hear that one of my best friends, Joel Patrone, passed today. He had an energy that was very contagious and I always saw God’s light shine on his face whenever I would see him.

Heartbroken to hear that one of my best friends, Joel Patrone, passed today. He had an energy that was very contagious and I always saw God’s light shine on his face whenever I would see him. I remember you being one of the first faces I’d see before school starts, before we had to hurry to get to homeroom. I remember our ambition to be leaders in the weight room, making creatine shakes post-workout from my locker so that we can be dominant on the field. I remember us finishing our 11th period Spanish homework in the 2 minutes before class as Fedowitz walked around. I remember being back home a couple of weeks ago driving by your road and wondering how you were doing. I remember not picking up the phone and giving you a call. What I would do to hear your voice one last time.

Informed yesterday that Joel Patrone the 23 year old son of my good friend Zola had died in a horrible car accident. Please keep the family in your prayers as they go through this.
