"It's been a year since I heard about your passing. I was pissed at first and didn't write knowing you had plenty to offer this world and you were gone so soon. I don't know what happened to you other then what I had heard from mutual friends. Whatever it was you didn't deserve it, neither did the rest of us that cared about you bro. There has been plenty of nights that your name has come up since this and we have tipped a beer to you friend, you are not forgotten. It's hard to come up with a funny or interesting story from my teens or early 20's that you weren't a part of.

You drove me off a cliff in your Ford Ranger and we lived to talk about it, I shoved 5 popsicle sticks in your mouth to shut you up while I tattooed the band around your leg. I carried you home over my shoulder after you fell and knocked yourself out on the train tracks at ISU one year. My point is we were on the same level and regardless of how careless, crazy or just flat out stupid something was we had fun doing it.
you are irreplaceable and one of a kind, and I'm going to miss you."

"A Poem I found online: Dedicated to Damien

Don’t fill your hearts with pain and sorrow,
but remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles.
I’ve only gone to rest for a while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am but as I used to be.

Because, I will remember you and look on with a smile.
Understand in your hearts, I’ve only gone to rest a while.

As long as I have the love of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

In Loving Memory of Damien J. Rost"

"Still think about you every day. I was describing how I was feeling with Ashlyn. I told her it feels like really bad homesickness. She said, "I get it. Damien was part of your home." She hit the nail on the head. Miss you every day. I'm still confused, mad, sad, and homesick. It's getting easier to bare and I know it will get better. The impact you had on my life was profound. I will never forget you even as I move forward. Thank you for all the wonderful things you did for me."

"Damien... I still have demons that haunt me for over a decade. I always thought that one day I'd see you again so I could scream & yell & cry. But that day will not come now. You and I have been thru a lot years and years ago. Some of the best & craziest times of my life were with you, but also my worst..... It never changed the fact that you've always had & still have a piece of my heart... & always will! You are someone that I will always think of often as I have over the years. & I know I need to forgive you... & I will one day I will be able too. I'm sorry that it sounds like you have had a hard life yourself. God Bless you!! No matter my feelings.... I've always cared."
