This is going to be the most lame journal I have ever submitted, but I miss Leonard Nimoy. Leonard Nimoy was an actor and a photographer who I have looked up to since I was a young child. I've always loved Star Trek, and Mr. Spock was who I wanted to be when I grew up. I miss his unwavering positivism. His influence has pushed me to educate myself from topics like astrophysics to topics like social justice.
A man I actually miss is Christopher Hitchens. He was a prominent speaker in religion, mainly his position of Atheism. He is what inspired me to be rational, and open to suggestions. But he also taught me that you never take anyone's word and you always research; as well as research the research. Sadly he died towards the end of 2011. A quote that I will always live by is “If someone tells me that I’ve hurt their feelings, I’m still waiting to hear what their point is.”
I miss my Grandad, he was such an inspiration to me. Even though he is in a better place he is my inspiration. He always knew what to tell me. he always fought through life. He knew he couldn't walk well but that didn't stop him for achieving what he wanted.
Someone that I miss on a daily basis is my grandma. She was the one who kept the entire family together as a whole. For her, we all would get together no matter where or why but we would do it just for her. If she taught me anything it was that family is one of the most important things in life and it's important to be surrounded by them at all times.
One person that I really miss is my grandpa. Six months ago he had a serious stroke, and while he is still here, his brain was greatly damaged, altering his ability to think, speak, and move. I really miss being able to have little conversations with him and gain wisdom from what he had to say. Over the past seventeen years, he has demonstrated how to live a meaningful life and helped in making me a better man. I will always be thankful for the times I got to spend with him.
I really miss my nana and papa Welch my great grandparents. Nana died 11 years ago from a stroke. My papa gave up because she died and he stopped taking his medication and he slowly died three years later. They were really knowledgeable in alot of thing and they taught me so many useful thing that I still use today.

Someone I miss is my dad I haven't seen my real dad in 7 years. Its hard sometimes, like I want it be able to talk to him and stuff I just don't know what I would say. I don't think it would be like talking to someone I see everyday I don't know him and he doesn't know me. I feel like it would be really awkward but i want a relationship with my real dad.
I miss my uncle Vince with all my heart. He died last year and I had not spoke with him for a year prior to his death due ideological conflicts. They have impacted my life making me realize not to hold grudges. I know he had nothing but love for me in his heart I know now that i should not have ever held a grudge over simple disputes. I should hold nothing but love for the people around Mel because you never know when its someones time to leave earth.

Someone I miss is one of my best friends and one of the greatest role models in my life. Although she is still around and I probably see her more often than the people others miss, it is hard to find time in her schedule to see her.

I miss my brother. My brother just began his job in Chicago where he is traveling 46 weeks out of the year. I miss having him around the house because he is always joking around and a joy to be with. He also stand as a competitor pushing me to do my best and work harder. He has greatly impacted my life since I have adapted my life to compare to his so that I can beat him in the activities we both participate in.
I miss my formal best friend. At the time we became best friends we were going through similar situations so that made us super close from the beginning. She was the one person I told absolutely everything to and somehow she always knew how to respond. She impacted my life because she helped me grow up. She was two years older than me so she was more mature and had a lot of wisdom for someone her age. Unfortunately we are no longer friends so she also impacted my life by teaching me that not everyone is meant to stay in your life for the long run.
The person I miss the most is my best friend Mikayla who I met in third grade. What I miss most about her is how much fun she was to be abound and the protective comradery we had for each other in school. She as helped mold me into the person I am to day and helps me stay happy.
Someone I miss is my cousin Jennifer. She used to live here in Sherman but she now lives in Florida and is in college.

She is one of the few people in my life who I can actually trust and I miss talking to her a lot.
I miss my great grandmother the most. She passed away almost two years ago but it still feels like yesterday when it happened. She was the sweetest and the meanest lady you'll ever meet. She impacted my life because she always was strong during hard times. I've never seen my grandmother shed one tear before. She was 88 years old when she passed and no matter what's going on there's not a day where I don't think about her. She was the heart and soul of my family and she will be truly missed.

Someone I really miss is my grandfather. I miss him because he was like a father to me since i grew up away from my father. He thought me lots of things & when he died my whole life changed. I cry when i remember how he used to play with me. People say he was an angry man even with his sons & other grandsons but to me he was the sweetest.
The one person I miss is my buddy Christopher. He moved to San Antonio in the summer going into senior year. Why I miss him is because everyday last year he would always make me laugh all day.

The person that I miss the most is my aunt Deanna she died in February 2008 when I was nine years old. She left behind her 4 children and her whole family. My grandpa and dad was very sad because they lost my grandmother about seven years earlier. When she was alive we were all close because almost everyday I got to spend time with her until the end.

I will always remember and love her forever.
