And just saw him laying there like that. It was just a — everybody was just f***ed up. You know what I’m saying? It was just a f***ed up time. And I’m sure he took it as hard as all of us or even harder being how close he was. But, you know, that didn’t matter. Everybody took it hard. That was just a rough, rough period.”
