We will miss your laugh and great sense of humor. We laughed together so much! I’m glad we spent so much time together as little cousins- you were one of my first real friends.
Until we meet again,
Your funniest cousin, Laura

You always were able to make us laugh, no matter the circumstances.
I remember cutting your hair once and I kept telling you I was giving you a buzz cut. You were scared to death!
Love you bud! Say hi to Joyce for me and give her a hug.
