"He felt his emotions very deeply, often more deeply than he would let show. But once he claimed you as his, he wouldn't let you go. He also had so many hopes & dreams for his future. He wanted the chance to make something of his life. To be someone. He LOVED music, he was ambitious, he was always on the move, always needed to be doing something," the GoFundMe said.
