I know there were messages, kind of cryptic messages that he was sending and I know I, looking back now after he passed I took some time to just go back through the old text messages and Facebook messages and I saw them as a lot more cryptic than I saw them when they were coming in. You know I was a 16, 15, 16 year old kid, I didn’t really get it. But I know from my end looking back now it was scary to see so I can’t imagine what it was like for my mom or for my sister to be receiving those messages and in like an adult state and aware of what’s happening. So, it’s scary to know that that was happening and I don’t know too much about that story because I was a kid. But I know they were happening, I know that’s that was terrifying to my mom and the rest of our family.
