The first boy I ever loved was Leron Taylor. This morning I awoke to an email informing me that Leron died, quite suddenly, yesterday afternoon.
He was an infinitely warm, gentle human being, an utter goofball. Silly and loving and kind to everyone he knew. These are pictures I took in high school, when we were dating. The year was 2005.
How can this beautiful human be gone? He was only 27 years old.
