COOP, you are already missed sooo very much. I especially miss waking up to your lyrical Geniusnes and poetry you always shared and the messages of musical lyrics from your favorite rap artist that you would send me at 3 an while I was working. This world truly lost an amazing man when you left us. Tell my mom hello from me and keep her company k. Love you SUPER COOPER.
When you were staying with us and a kitten fell through the celling. !! Hahaha “are you kitten me” bj says.
You were so clumsy at times. So I figured you tripped over something, but I was wrong. Lmfao 🤣
Love you my friend can’t believe you are gone! You are going to be missed by many. Not to many people like you anymore.
