A Life Cut Short
Conrad was born on May 12, 1984 and he died on May 21, 2003. The following is a view of his life as seen through the eyes of his family and friends. This is a difficult task, so please have patience while these pages are put together.

I went through Conrad's message board and gathered together some select random memories of Conrad. Click here to view them. You can view the rest, or add some of your own, by joining our community. We would love to hear from you.
A few days after Conrad died a memorial was held for him at College of the Desert. It was attended by his family, friends and teachers. Many of them spoke of their relationships with Conrad. A lot of their comments were videoed. You can view and listen to these here.
I never know what to say until I sit down at my computer and begin to write... and even then, it all comes out wrong...
