I just genuinely can't believe you're gone. You're my model man. We we're gonna be top models together! I'm gonna miss going through my closet for hours, while you let me style you. You really could pull anything off. You're the reason why i'm buying skirts for the summer man. I'm gonna miss whooping you're ass on fortnite till 5am. Countless hours in creative 1v1ing and teaching you editing and building techniques. You were getting good at the game. would've given it 3 months you would've been better than me. Didn't think i'd ever say that lmao. I'm gonna miss how you couldn't sit in silence for more than 2 minutes. Always had to have a conversation going. I'm gonna miss the late night seshes and always seeing who could roll a better backwoods. I mean we were putting woods in woods just to see how big we could get them lmao. You definitely could roll better though. I'm gonna miss those goofy ass roasts as soon as you walked in the door. I'm gonna miss that screaming mad face you'd make randomly. i gonna miss hugging you. i'm gonna miss that laugh and smile. I'm gonna miss you man! I'm gonna miss your big heart and how you cared for everyone so much. Always checking in. Seeing if everyone is doing okay. Really couldn't have asked for a better best f--king friend. I love you Cooper. I f--king love you man. Rest Easy bub."
