Raven, I'm sorry I didn't know you left until a few days ago. I'm sorry I never got to say goodbye.
You were, and will be, a brother to me, man. For three years we were close friends. You taught me many things, and I feel that had I not met you, I'd be a very idiotic person (well, I am an idiot, but less of an idiot). You helped me overcome several prejudices and low-points in my life, and for that I thank you. I feel that I never helped you as much as you helped me, and for that I am also sorry. We had some rough times, but we got through 'em, and for me, that makes us true friends.
We did so much together, and although this is the internet, I felt like I had a close bond with you. Even though we fought sometimes, we spent more time generating ideas and being friends that it evens out. You disagreed with some of my stances on the police, and I disagreed with some of your stances on gangsta rap, but we respected each other, and that's what its about. I'll miss you, Raven.
Raven, I'm glad you've moved on in your life. I'll see you later, brother.
