This week one of my best friends was murdered in a senseless, violent act. He opened his front door, and was shot in the chest. He died going to the hospital. I was literally waiting for him to call me when this happened. I've never met a better person in my life.
His family is in a very bad financial situation, and though none of you might not have known him, it would be greatly appreciated if anyone could donate even the smallest amounts to help out.


This is an article from last night.

Paypal donations can be made to lauren.dubey@gmail.com

I never knew him but he was a friend to so many of my friends. I was at the benefit for his father last summer. I feel awful for his family.

I heard about this. Didn't know him personally but friends of mine spoke highly of him. Will donate later this week.

This is terrible, I will do all I can to help once I obtain the means (march was a rough financial month). Call me if you need to vent/cry it out. :(

Thanks everyone. Yesterday hundreds of people gathered in a last minute memorial service for hours in the freezing cold. Even if you're not aware, this dude has probably somehow impacted somebody you know. Tell your friends you love them.

oof. This really got to me....but 100000% backed. Lost a lot of pol close to me, what I wouldn't give to have had that chance to say it one more time. People make fun of me for being so huggy/affectionate to my friends but I always want them to know how much I care about them.

That's really nice, Paul. No sarcasm. Sorry you lost your friend and I hope the benefit is a success.

I don't care what people think of me, I'm a big mushy puffball when it comes to my friends. I don't care how silly I look, I love hugs way too much.

I really hope this benefit gets a lot of attention. It's well deserved.

Same. I'm so glad that some of the last things I said to him were about how much I loved him and how great he is.
and thanks Sherman. I really hope a lot of positive things come from this even though it is completely devastating. His dad was paralyzed two years ago in an accident, and his family has been dealing with his being in the hospital and whatnot ever since. They really need financial help, and if anyone has any good ideas for raising money, I'd be more than happy to hear them.

I just read this on someone's blog. Just so you know a tiny fraction of the kind of person he was.

"but what makes punk special is going to a show, high fiving the kid with the biggest mohawk, and buying records. do all of these things. be tolerant: let short people stand in front and let girls get into bands and sing a long and mosh just like the boys do. do shows at your house and make food for everyone that's there. start a band and yell about some shit that really pisses you off. do something, anything, i fucking beg you."
