He was born on Valentine's Day, 1994. His parents loved him, but when he was 8 years old, they divorced. Dad left. He became introverted. Shy. His mom shielded him from life's cruelties.

One of those cruelties came when he was 15. His first breakup. The girl broke his heart. He wrote about it in his journal. Addressed to his dad. Of course, dad never answered. Maybe it was easier that way. He'd never told his mom; she'd say I told you so.

Journal entries no one answered.

On Valentine's Day 2015, he jumped from Tobin Bridge to his death.

    Sad. No wonder there is a 'Single Awareness Day."
