Friends and loved ones are still feeling the aftershocks of the sudden death of rapper and music mogul Dr. Dre's 20-year-old son Andre Young Jr. But those closest to him will always remember him as a happy guy who had an optimistic outlook on life.

"He always had a smile on his face," Sarah Steinhorn, Young's former classmate at Stoneridge Preparatory in Simi Valley, Calif., tells PEOPLE, "even when something bad would happen, like if he didn't pass a test or didn't do as well as he wanted to. He always looked at the positive side.

"I remember him liking to go to parties in high school but not for the reasons that people think," said Steinhorn. "It was never about drugs or alcohol with him. He just really enjoyed being around people, talking and interacting and meeting new people."

Grammys: Dre Shows Up Eminem

Originally posted 06/12/1998 12:00AM

The question of whether or not controversial rapper Eminem might be blessed by the mainstream-minded National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences was answered shortly before noon in Beverly Hills today with the announcement of this year's Grammy nominations. The musician received four Grammy nods, including those for album of the year for "The Marshall Mathers LP." Yet it was "gangsta" rapper Dr. Dre who showed up Eminem, his foul-mouthed protégé -- by getting five nominations to Eminem's four. Beyonce Knowles, a member of female R&B trio Destiny's Child, also picked up five nods. Vince Gill took four, including best country album. Record of the year nominees are Destiny's Child for "Say My Name," 'N Sync for "Bye Bye Bye," Madonna for "Music," Macy Gray for "I Try" and U2 for "Beautiful Day." Up against Eminem for album of the year are Beck for "Midnite Vultures," Radiohead for "Kid A," Paul Simon for "You're The One" and Steely Dan for "Two Against Nature." Song of the year nominees: U2's "Beautiful Day," Faith Hill's "Breathe," Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance," Macy Gray's "I Try" and Destiny's Child's "Say My Name." The 43rd Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS on Feb. 21.
