A Tribute to JP

"Stupid cancer. We all want a new car, a new phone. A person who has cancer only wants one thing... to survive"
So, at this point, most of you probably know of the passing of one of my best friends, JP last week. I appreciate all of the support and kind words I've received from so many people. He was a wonderful, wonderful guy. Below is a recent picture of us.
 For JP:
I wish there was just one more day. One more time that he would tell me "Girl, you need Jesus", or "B*tch I WILL stab you" Or "Don't EVER touch my phone again" (Response to when I switched his new phone he didn't know how to work too well yet to Spanish... haha) We had many, many "inside" jokes that no one else really understands. JP, one of my best buddies... you are missed, so much, by so many. I'm trying not to be selfish, I really am, because obviously you were needed up there for something special God had in store for you, but sometimes I feel like I need you here more. I will never forget you or the amazing friendship we had. I have been so blessed to have you in my life, if only for a few short years. I know you're looking down on me, and right now that's bringing me comfort. I love you - You're my angel now.

"One more day."

Three of the most beautiful words in the world.

I prayed for that every morning during my late brother's cancer.

I was lucky enough to be there for his last eight months.

My deepest condolences on JP's passing.

Seems like the world could use more JP's.

More Stacey's, too.

Thank you for your kind words, Mike. If only you could have met him. He was and is one of a kind. Unfortunately JP passed extremely suddenly and with little warning (a few days) so it's a very hard time around here right now. We need to catch up sometime soon. Miss your face!

Rest in Eternal Peace JP.
May your memories live on in the hearts and minds of those you leave behind.
May treasured memories find their way to your peaceful heart Stacy.

I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. My best friend died of brain cancer in 1974 and I still miss him every day.
