RIP My Friend Jaime Cruz

A friend that I'v known for many many years recently passed away on the night of Oct 16 2010.  He was on his motorcycle going nearly 100 mph on Grissom rd and was turning onto Misty Way when an Excursion hit him.  He was killed almost instantly.  Paramedics were not able to revive him because of a broken jaw.  I've known Jaime almost my entire life.  I went to elementary, middle, and high school with this kid.  All my memories of him are of him being the class clown and smiling all the time.  He had no beef with anybody ever.  He got along with everyone and was such a funny guy.  I know he is up in heaven watching over his friends and family.  I'm more mad than anything.  Jaime was such a cool guy that didnt deserve to go so soon.  He was only 25 years old, with his whole life ahead of him.  I guess what they say is true, the good ones die young.  I will never forget you Jamie Cruz.  You will forever be in my heart and my prayers go out to your family.  Watch over your brother because i know he's taking it hard. 

RIP my dear friend, Jaime Cruz.
