I´m sorry that it took me so long to finally say something. But i would just like to say that I Loved Sebastian so much our friendship meant the world to me. He was always the most comforting, sweet, reliable person ever. He was always smiling and always happy. Joking around with everyone everyday and just being so joyful. After hearing about his passing I couldn´t believe it, it took me a long time to process that he is gone. I cried so many times telling myself that I could´ve helped him, that there was something I could´ve done and he would still be here. I know I´m not the only one who blamed themselves for what happened. I tried to believe that everyone was lying and that he was still here. But then came time for me to realize that everyone was telling the truth but he isn´t gone to me he´s still in my heart, thoughts and prayers. I can´t get over how much I loved him. I will never forget the last time I saw his smile, and I will never forget the last laugh we shared. He was a truly amazing person and the best kinda of friend i could ever have asked for. I am glad that he had been a part of my life and I´m glad to have been a part of his. It´s truly terrible that he left. He was so strong and this battle with life that he was fighting must have just been too strong. I´m sorry that the event took place for him to have lead him to that path. I wish there was more that I could´ve done for him.

Sebastian was an orthodontic patient in our office whom I had the pleasure to get to know over the years. I always looked forward to seeing and talking to Sebastian at his appointments. This young man was the nicest and most polite patients that I have had the opportunity to treat. My most sincere condolences go out to Sebastian's family. Please know that you have raised a wonderful child and I am so sorry for your loss.
