Thank you. Thank you for helping me through my darkest times. You were there. I listened to your voice, your music, and your raw emotion delivered in the form of a melody. You were a huge part of Linkin Park and for that, I thank you.
You will never know the magnitude of your very presence in my life and the lives of other fans. Although I had never met you, it was as though you were my friend. You were present when I was feeling alone, rejected and depressed. Your voice was one that helped me battle against my inner demons; reminding me that I was not alone. You gave me the option of turning on Linkin Park when I needed to tune out the voices in my head.
You were a huge part of my youth. Your music was my therapy. To this day, I turn to Linkin Park when filled with sadness or anger. I wish you knew how much significance you held in this world. We were not ready to let you go. One day, I will finally meet you and thank you for all you've done for me.
