everyone needs somebody.

Wrote this last night: "if a person is in need of someone and they have no one, you can't ignore them; would like to express this strongly as possible." Have been trying my best to help out a co-worker down here... she's 19, out of high school but no college yet, her parents just got divorced, and feels like she has no direction and that life is just a long road to death. Unbeknownst to me around the same time I had written that statement, a friend took his life when he probably needed someone... EVERYONE NEEDS SOMEBODY.
Jameson Lavo, though sometimes a rather tumultuous friend, was always there to give you a good chuckle with his colorful antics - and tell you stories in his signature bold, booming voice. One night when I was my lowest (and admittedly feeling as if it was the end for me,) him and another friend came to cheer me up, and I really wish I could have been there to do the same for him, even if it was just a phone call.
None of us should ever struggle alone.
While these will be confusing and tragic times for everyone who knew Jamie, I really hope something resonates within everyone: People are not dispensable. Please take good care of everyone you know. While it may be unbeknownst to you, they need you, just as you need them.
