Well street and aurora grove.....

> Hi Tim,
> I'm not sure if you will remember me, but I went to both Wells Street Public School and Aurora Grove with Hilton. Although I hadn't spoken to Hilton in several years, he had a great impact on my life throughout the years I knew him. I remember every year that he was in my classes and also when I sat next to him in art class every day. We talked about what our next assignment was, who was being a shit disturber in the class and how we would get them to shut up. He was kind to everyone around him, but when someone wasn't kind to him he told them off (I respect him for being able to do that). I've been checking your blog several times a day since I first heard of his accident and I've been thinking of you and your family every day. I remember playing basketball early in the morning with you, Hilton and other children from Wells Street, and I remember you telling me not to give up on basketball once I left the school. I didn't know what Hilton was doing the following years after I had seen him last, but I'm glad that he was doing something that he loved. I want you to know that I will be thinking of you and your family every day for the next days, weeks and months to come. I also want you to know how I saw in Hilton through my years of knowing him. I saw a young man who was kind and caring. One who would say what he felt and one who knew what he liked. I can't possibly imagine what you are going through right now, but I hope that you and the rest of your family will find some sort of comfort sometime soon.

  1. I can remember at Aurora Grove, our grade 8 dance, when Hilton was (probably dared) asking me to dance. Of course I said yes. And what an awkward and magical moment it was. We danced at arms length and I remember that even though the whole gym smelled like sweaty 14 year old boy b.o., Hilton smelled so good. I only wish that in that moment I had pulled him just a bit closer and told how much I appreciated my first dance.
    You're greatly missed, budd.
