In loving memory of Abam Bocey

Salam Abam,

When I heard the news, I just kept staring at my phone. The brief but meaningful times we shared kept rolling in my head. You are and will always be one of the nicest & most sincere people I have ever met. We tried many times do to something together. I remember tearing up during our dinner discussions to help you inspire others who are at times misunderstood, misrepresented and pressured to please public expectations. You were always always always willing to contribute your time and energy towards helping others. Even if it meant sacrificing your own well-being.

Perhaps we should have done more to help you.

I will miss you my brother.

For Abam it was never about #gemukisawesome. It was about being AWESOME no matter what.
