So sad to hear of your passing. You were one of our first friends when my family moved to Peabody, being one of the neighborhood kids came easy. Even after you moved id see you visit your moms house always saying hi. Then most recently catching you and Chris at dunks on the bike stopping to reminisce a little before you go. You will always be remembered with a smile and a great admiration for how you lived your life. You will be missed.
