I hate writing a status about losing a friend. I just saw the bad news. We lost someone who was a legend growing up where I come from. Paul Crosby who always had my back in high school. Anytime I needed help he was right behind me. We just reached out to one another again recently. I looked up to you big bro as a friend. You took our high school to it’s first basketball championship ever! And won! Your in my hall of fame forever! I’ll always remember the memories we had! Especially the time we went to Eaton rapids in your blazer to do donuts in a field too many crazy/fun times! You’ll forever be missed man fr. KOB!!!! forever! RIP BIG BRO.
