The sound of skateboards clicking on concrete was silenced when Duncan Boatner walked to the top of a short hill and began to speak. Over one hundred people, most in white t-shirts, gathered around and younger skaters watched through a chain link fence as Boatner tearfully remembered his best friend during a candlelight vigil at Mathis Skate Park in Edmond on Tuesday. “We loved Will, and he loved us,” said Boatner as he held up his candle. “We’ll never forget him. he’ll always be in our hearts.”
