Everyone knows the basic quote "you won't remember what they said but you'll always remember how they made you feel". Drennen surely captured this for me and boy can I tell you, that guy made me feel loved, heard, and supported. Ever since I can remember, my favorite memory of Drennen and I is sitting across from his house on the curb just talking after night games ended. Whether it was about games, school, or life - I knew I could tell him anything. He was so honest, friendly, and empathetic even as a 12 year old (Crazy, I know!!). He always made me feel like I wasn't crazy for having big dreams and encouraged me to be the best friend I could be. I will forever cherish our conversations, even if I don't remember what exactly we said; I can definitely remember that they made me feel better.
