Rest in Peace, JD Salinger.
It is incredible how much you influenced my life.
I can safely say that you are the reason I became an English major, and your books will always hold a special place in my heart.
I am forever in gratitude to you for helping me discover my love of literature.
Thank you. You will not be forgotten.
"Certain things they should stay the way they are. You ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone. I know that's impossible, but it's too bad anyway."
My favorite quote ever, and it's from The Catcher in the Rye.
