“The one thing that can’t be defeated is love, right? You can conquer hate by ignoring it, you can destroy it by loving the person next to you. So I want everybody here tonight to look at the person standing next to you and just tell ‘em that you love 'em and you are happy that they’re here with you tonight, having a good time. Listening to music. Celebrating life. We don’t care what you look like, we don’t care where you come from, we don’t care what you believe in. We love every single one of you out there, and nothing will ever change that. With that said, let’s sing some songs together.”

Rest In Peace, Chester ♥

I can hardly believe it’s been a year. A whole year.
I can hear your voice which is so familiar yet so different at the same time. 
I can hear it without even listening.
It is buried inside me. 

Your voice soothed me, your words healed me, your music inspired me.
You changed me. 
And I don’t know what to do with this feeling.
Sometimes I feel content, knowing I have a little bit of you in me. 
Other times I feel so empty, knowing that’s all I’ll ever get.

It’s been a year and it still feels like yesterday.
My heart was broken and I haven’t been able to put it together again.
A piece is missing. It’ll be missing forever.  
You took it away. Once more…
You changed me. 

Bright, bright, bright star.
You shine on.  
You are so missed, so loved.
So far gone, yet looking so alive from down here. 
Burning between us. We’ll carry on. 
We’ll work it out, you live through us. 

Forever in us. 
Forever with us.
You’re not gone.
Wherever you are, 
Love you.  

And the world is so still…
