This is old news, but it's still been on mind and I just want to type it out.

A few weeks ago, my next door neighbor Willie died. I found this out after I came home from work, and I really just couldn't believe what I heard. Just the week before we were talking and joking about trading lunches, and the next minute, he's gone. It truly killed my mood.

The messed up part is that there are so many different stories going around about what happened to him. The first thing I heard was that he was stabbed, but then I also heard another story that he died of a drug overdose, while yet another story says he had a heart attack.

I outright refuse to believe he died of an overdose. This was a guy who was always naturally happy and energetic. At the most, I can see him possibly smoking some weed, but nothing more than that. As for the heart attack, I don't know. I never even knew the man to have so much as a cold, so while that is entirely possible, I'm not sure if that's what it was either.

What sucks the most is that I really believe this didn't have to happen. His mother decided to sell the house without his consent for next to nothing, so he was basically forced out and was in the process of finding somewhere to live. If she didn't do that, I honestly don't think he would have gone out that night and he'd still be here now.

I went with my father and grandmother to the wake, and we only stayed for a few minutes. It was just too depressing to be there and see him like that. It honestly looked like he was just sleeping, like he'd get up at any moment and ask why everyone was so sad.

It's been about 3 weeks or so since this happened, and yet I still can't believe it. I'm so used to seeing him when I come home from work and spending a half hour or more on the front steps just talking about whatever and having a good laugh. He was a very fun, caring person who always had a smile on his face. Some days I come home and just look to next door, expecting him to be there even though I know he's gone.

Will, I'm going to miss you. I hope you're at peace and I hope to see you again one day. Rest in peace my friend.
