David Kapral.

As people close to me may or may not know, my cousin David Kapral died this morning. I should end it there, because at this point I'm completely drained. I've devoid of all human emotion, but I'm going to try my damndest. At 3:00 AM this morning, he was out on the road on Roosevelt Boulevard. Anyone who knows Philly streets knows this one is the absolute worst. I...I'm at a total loss. I was woken up to my mom crying, and eventually she broke the news to the whole house. Never has a death struck me this hard. I was too young to understand when my Pop-Pop died. My Nana was ailing for a while, and when she died I knew she was truly at peace. But David...David was only 18 FUCKING YEARS OLD. The kid was a year younger than I was. He was too young to be taken, god damn it. And now.......I'm at a loss for my own life. I know it's death, and people get over it eventually, but David was more than a cousin. He was a best friend to me. He was a brother to me.

I'm crying right now, because the last time I saw him was Christmas Eve. For 3 minutes. Him, his girlfriend, and Steven were leaving, and the last thing he ever said to me was, "See ya, Man". I just can't imagine how my Aunt Lisa and Uncle Dave are feeling right now. He left behind his 2 brothers and sister. I can't imagine what they're feeling right now. When I heard the news, I started shaking, stumbling. My dad nearly fainted. The mood here is hard to describe, I just wish it was all a bad dream.

I wrote this on his MySpace:

I can't believe this happened, man. Dave, there's so many things I regret in life, but #1 is not going to visit your house on my birthday 3 days ago. It crossed my mind, and I hate myself to death for it. I love you with all of my heart, man. You always pushed me to be a better person, and I hope I can be half as good as you were.

We're going to be cousins forever. Watch over Nick, Alyssa, and Steven for me. Your parents, too. Watch over me, Gina, and everyone who loved you. I'll never forget you, and I want to thank you for making my life better, even though it was short on Earth.

Cousins till the end, man. I love you, and I miss you.

Thank you David for everything.

He always was the cooler one between us, haha.

I love you man.
