I met Matt at a shelter while in Florida. I helped him through his break up, made up his resume, got him a job, set him up with a phone, went to the hospitals with him, I held his hand all the way through Texas (where he was from).
We left for Texas coincidentally on Erik’s bday, Sept 21st.
We were best friends. I’ve were attached at the hip. Even considered him as a boyfriend but it wasn’t really like that. I felt like by helping him the way I did I was making up for not being able to with Erik before his death in 2009.
I’m so fucking heartbroken. I spend the whole day reading through our texts and remembering him. I miss my friend. It feels like I lost Erik a second time.
