Ode to Rydus

As I look around this room now,

I do not see the friends that I met years ago.

No, I see brothers.

I see sisters.

I see parents.

We have all become this great big family that no casting mold could have ever held.

We are all doing our own things with the people we love, and doing all those amazing things on our own time.

So even though I may not see you all as much as I would like.

Just know that no matter where you all are or what you’re doing.

That you have a brother here who

supports you. Who is proud of you. And who loves you.
