I just found out last night about a good friend from high school that past away from a car accident. He was part of my barkada (“entourage” in Filipino) in high school. We ate lunch together, we played basketball together, ran track together. His family was even a few houses away from me. He was a bit socially awkward and lacked some common sense but he was intelligent and well loved by us and others that knew him.
He leaves behind a wife and daughter. The daughter suffers from cerebral palsy, autism, and mental retardation.
She has created a gofundme.com page that would help with the medical expenses for her daughter.
I will miss him. His family is in my prayers.
