What I Will Remember
September 4, 2011 10 Comments
Today, my friend Trey Pennington took his life.
He was despondent over personal troubles.
Trey was everyone’s friend. He was liked, respected, loved by thousands.
But he was eventually overwhelmed by darkness and loss.
After years of interaction on-line, we finally met in NYC in April 2010. And this is the Trey I will always remember – warm, funny, smart, considerate, friendly. A true gentleman.
Trey is a man I looked up to, and sought to emulate. He was a friend I very much wanted to spend a lot more time with. Now I – we – will feel a terrible absence.
If you are being overwhelmed by waves of darkness, I beg you – put aside all thoughts of ending your life and get some help. No matter how bad things are, we need you here in the boat with us. Don’t break our hearts. Please.
