    Kyle was like a brother to me. He was a strong hearted kid, always putting others before himself. He even carried me up a hill and down 5 streets when I got a nail through my foot. I am twice his size. He seemed so happy... but something pushed him over the edge and it's not fair people have to do that to someone.
