And one day I was getting bullied and then he stepped in, and I can say… That bully did not come around anymore😔 but when he passed, that killed a part of me too. And I came here to wish began a happy new year again😞 love you man❤

  3. Tegan was and forever will be one of my absolute best friends. He was funny and caring and was always trying to help somebody. I’m a year ahead of Tegan’s class in school so I barely got to see him before he passed. I remember how I would go out to the playground during recess and his sister Morgan and I would hang out or irritate him…depending on his mood. When I found out Tegan had passed, I was actually getting ready to go on stage for a play. I found out on opening night at least an hour before I had to go on. I remember going to find my closest high school friend and I sat there and cried. That boy… Tegan… will be in my heart until the day I die. I miss him beyond words can explain. I loved Tegan and will never stop. Tegan…until we meet again little buddy. Fly high!

  4. I can’t believe it has been 5 years, I still miss you dude. Alot of time has passed since then but it doesn’t matter, you forever hold a spot in my heart and I miss you. I hope you’re having fun up there bro, I wish you were here with me.
