I skated for Kenny today...
It was an emotional moment to have someone whom you care so much for, in-thought when normally, one doesn't or can't think of anything in the midst of a trick or taking a corner around a round-wall. I cried for the first time while skateboarding...
Go and roll for our friend and brother.
I met Kenny during the Summer after my 8th grade year, entering the 9th back in Hawaii. We skated together and that's all we did everyday back then. We didn't have cameras around too often during that time and only a handful of photographs have emerged from shoe boxes or scrap-books since then. I found some photos deep in my sticker box and I can't even tell you who took them or how they got there but I'm thankful I have them.
Love and miss you, man.
