Goku’s friend JB Coleman called him “the best friend you could ever ask for.” He noted, “He was my best friend, we had known each other for only 7 years but honestly, it felt more like a lifetime. He and I would have 8-hour calls almost all the time we got on the phone talking about life are dreams and what moves we were gonna make he was a big dreamer he wanted to do so many things he honestly brought out the best in others.”
