Too Sudden, Too Soon.

Today, was one of the worst days I've experienced in a long time.

Who could've ever known what would happen in the future? Okay, not future, let's say tomorrow. No? Okay, next hour. You think you know it? I don't.
Such is life. You think "tomorrow's just going to be an ordinary day", but really, every minute ahead of us is a mystery. One moment it could be sunny, and rainy the next.
I thank you, Stephane Nguegium, for bringing so much laughter into our science, math and geography classes; but most importantly, your smile could really turn one's day right back up no matter how harsh or shitty their day was.
You're an angel with a pure heart.
I should smile because you lived, and not cry, because you are gone. You're an influence to us all. Your strength, courage, and so much more to mention.

God saw you were getting tired
And a cure was not meant to be
So he put his arms around you
And whispered come with me
With tearful eyes we watched you
As we saw you pass away
Although we love you deeply
We could not make you stay
Your golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.

I will miss the times you turned around in Chemistry to tap on my shoulder asking to borrow an eraser, or in a more ninja way, snatch it if I wasn't looking. I'm sorry for giving you death stares, I really didn't mean it.
I will miss the times you sat right behind me in geography, and Ms. Siddall would always tell you "Shhh STEPHANE" when you spoke a bit too loud, but she never cared if Lisa and I talked non stop. Oh, and when you spoke French to her and she pretended to know what you were on about.
You: You know?
Ms. Siddall: -nods carefully-
You: -imitates the nodding-
Ms. Siddall: No I don't know I am very sorry Stephanee!
-everyone else laughs-
Oh, and who could forget about Barbra Streisand and bus duty.
I will miss the times you rambled on about some random stuff in biology.. and Mr. Austenberg'd be like: Hmmmm no. Your reaction: AW MAN!
Gotta love that.
I will miss the times seeing you sit at the way front in physics.
Everything just won't be the same anymore.
No more laughter in the corridors, arguments with you in geography, no one who's going to snatch my eraser from me in chemistry..
I will miss the times when you always came up to Rachel and I to get that answer sheet for the past papers, and I'd always tell you: NO STEPHANE. and your reply'd always be: OKAY OKAY YOU NINJA! don't look at me like that ! stephane.. I miss you.
When we were learning about bearings.. you asked why we were learning about bears and whipped out your little dictionary, you're precious.

But that's okay.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
All those memories will be stored in my heart.. a special place just for you.

That smile 

Geography.. good times, good times.

You're a quiet one with a loud voice and big heart.
Unique. Special. One of a kind. 
Rest in Peace Stephane. You will be missed by us all.
My most heartfelt condolences to your family.
Thanks for everything,
                         I love you. 

P.S. Please say hi to Riccardo for me, I'm sure you two will become great friends.
