Twenty-four is Too Young to Die

Dear Source,
I'm a proud Virgin Islander who resides in Miami, Florida. It saddens me to know that my peers are dying everyday. I knew David [Lawrence] from school, although not personally. I had the opportunity to attend Pearl B. Larsen Elementary and Elena Christian Jr. High School with him, too. On the outside looking in David was very quiet and sweet. As we got older I ran in to him couple of times in Western Auto. Always seem quiet and to himself. Twenty-four is a young age to lose your life. It's too soon to bury a child. My sympathy goes out to the family.
