READ: Razorback featured vocalist Nicole Laurel Asensio pens lengthy farewell message for Brian Velasco


Mere hours following the controversial death of Brian Velasco, Razorback featured vocalist Nicole Laurel Asensio has posted her lengthy farewell message for the late drummer, whom she revealed to be a close friend.

“While on the plane this morning, I found myself staring at this photo for a long time. I don’t know why. I was deleting old photos to make space on my phone. Then while staring, I was thinking to myself about how you’ve always been there for me through everything,” she began.

 

Through Facebook, Nicole looked back on the glorious days of her friendship with Brian, which dates back to when she was as young as 16 years old.

“You were one of my best friends since I was 16. The guy I could sleep next to for nights without any malice, just full on trust.

“I love your entire being, even all the darker sides. I love your thoughts, even the painful ones. I loved our days-long exchanges of words and when we ran out, I loved when we had no words but sat there giggling,” she said.

Having shared the stage for 13 years, the singer confessed that she’s still in shock because of Brian’s death.

“I am raging with anger but I love you. Like family and more. Now I’m back there, in that drowning lull because I don’t know where you are... I’m miles away, there’s nothing I can do and I don’t have any words. No words. No giggles,” she wrote.

 

 

Brian died from apparent suicide, which he recorded live on Facebook, early this Tuesday. The video has since been taken down.
