I remember the first time I saw this video I was so touched last year. Now watching it again my eyes are filled with tears. Rest in Peace Kyle Trotman.

I can't believe this is actually happening; it doesn't feel real. Rest in peace, Kyle. Thank you for being a friend to me when BU felt so lonely in my freshman year. I love you very much. I don't know what happens now, but just know that you will never be forgotten, period.

I didn't know Kyle, but I can tell from this video and from the response of other people that we have lost a wonderful human being. Please Rest in Peace Kyle.

"Oh heart, if one should say to you that the soul perishes like the body, answer that the flower withers, but the seed remains." (Kahlil Gibran) My heart goes out a thousand-fold to Kyle's dear mother: I hope you know that those of us at BU are reaping the harvest of all the seeds this wonderful young man planted. It is the hope of every parent that our children grow to have kind hearts & strong characters and in Kyle's luminescent spirit we see, above all, the daily diligence of a loving mother.
