All that comes together will be separated,
All that exists will dissolve,
Nothing is permanent.

I didn’t sleep 100% in Cyprus, your kind work ethic and understanding were on full display in the short time I interacted with you in the gym. You encouraged me to jump in dismissing the charge with your PT. “what we do together don’t worry brother” rest in peace Evan Leo https://t.co/cwAM6igp5y

I think the last time I saw Evan Liu, he had walked away, and they were passing his large shades around the table for all to wear, letting him have a light touch of fun. I think Ebony Kenny was at that table.
Back, he was smiling. He is clearly a fun guy. awesome.
