RIP David


David McGrath
July 19 1982 - April 8. 2011

David and I met my very first year in stateboro. I was new to town and we had been taking on before I moved there. He was the nicest guy, always so kind and thoughtful. He was cute and we always flirted. We even dated for a little bit, but deicded to just be friends. David would always make an effort to come to my lame dorm parties, he met all my loser boyfriends and supported me after break ups. He was one of those guy friends every girl needs to have. I always wondered if he & I were meant to be together, both of us being catholic and all. 

We got into a hugh fight about 6 months before I graduated. He didnt like that I was spoiled and my parents paid for my college, I just assumed he was jealous. We stopped talking after that. Only recently, maybe in January, I sent him a facebook message to say I was sorry about the fight. We chatted a little bit but it wasnt the same. 

I was planning to tell him I would see him in Savannah in a few weeks when I was in town for the bridal shower, and I saw everyone writing RIP on his wall. I found the news report of what happened. Heres the link if you want to read it:

David worked so hard as a truck driver, he wanted to go back to school, get married and have a family. David gave the best hugs and he never judged me, even when I was too drunk to walk. David was the big brother I never had and I know a part of me will always love him. 

RIP David, you will live on in my heart always!

Ashley's Birthday

We were a little drunk

What a horrific thing to find out. I have a friend who I have lost touch with and wonder if I should reach out to him. I am sorry for your loss. I found your blog over at
