this wasn’t the last thing he said to me, but it speaks volumes of the man he was. Riley was an amazing man who loved my best friend with everything in him. He would do anything for her, no matter what she needed because she was the love of his life. A couple of weeks ago he told me he was going to marry my best friend and god how i wish he could have made good on that. The first time he ever talked to me was through my friends phone, she had told him that I (a stranger to him) was having a panic attack so he sent me a text through her phone that said “hi we love you and you can get through this.” Even though he didn’t know me, he wanted me to know he was cheering for me, he was an amazing man with the biggest heart ever. He would stream Destiny and i got to watch some and him saying “mmmmmm dab” will forever be etched in my brain.
Riley died Sunday morning (01/15/17) because of a careless criminal trying to evade police after robbing a pizza hut. That careless criminal took the lives of Riley and his father, and also his own. Two innocent people are dead because one mad just HAD to rob a pizza place for a couple hundred dollars and Riley’s family and friends will never be the same because of it.
I urge everyone to hold their loved ones tight and keep my best friend in your thoughts & prayers if you could.
We miss you Riley, thanks for being an amazing human being, and boyfriend to my best friend. I’ll watch over her here on earth, please watch over her up there, love you always.
