We may not have talked every day but you were a very important person in my life. The past 14 years calling you my friend I will always cherish. You were like an older brother. Always looking out for me but still allowing me to learn on my own. There's not one memory that outweighs the other so I won't attempt to list any, but none of them will ever be forgotten. Your life ended way to soon my brother. I will always love you dearly.

Omg, spoke with your brother tonight. He reminded me how you guys would lay on the trampoline in the backyard and he'd tease you because you could see the angels and he just saw flashes of light. That was during the time you guys prayed for my health and I survived heart surgery and...
He also remembered how you prayed for the return of his stolen starter jacket and he got it back 14 days later.
And when we had the rainbow in our driveway and you said, ''Where's the pot of gold?" while we're all miraculously walking through a green hued light hearing from Jesus that "we are His treasure". Funny man! Now we live in Treasure Cove. No such thing as coincidence . I look forward to hugging you again. Addy told me yesterday that it's not fair, I'm so much closer to seeing you again because she's only 9. Hilarious girl. We miss you. I'm jelly, you're with Jesus , but we're gonna do our best to destroy the works of the devil until we meet again. Love you, tell my grandpas, grandmas, and daddy I love them, too, please. Momma

I remember when Chris invited my family to church, we all went. When it was over I stayed the night for the super bowl party. I didn't know I was pregnant at the time, but now I realize why I ate all the 7 layer dip.

I remember when we worked a temp job at Schwann's together in DeerPark. I'll never forget how you made a mind numbing, boring job, fun. I may not recall all your jokes, but I do remember you telling me to imagine the face on the kid that opens this box and realizes they get extra eggrolls. I miss you. DAD
(Yes, I'll keep this Jersey you gave me!)

When I think of you I still see the teen in front of me I met 19 years ago. With your beautiful eyes and those long eye lashes you always had that look on your face like you were up to something and most of the times you were...
We had our struggles like probably all brothers and sisters do at times and I consider you as my brother. However, behind the scenes I think you cared just as much for me as I did for you. You always cared for everybody so much. I can only imagine what a great father you were and I am really sad I never personally got to see what a grown man and caring father you had become. I know you will watch over your kids from heaven but still it makes me sad to know you will not be around anymore.
Farewell my little brother. I see you in heaven with that same grin on your face you have in my memory. I love you, Melanie

My big bubba, I thought I sent my memory here already but it never posted. Its so hard to accept the fact that you're gone but I know you're in heaven.. I'll always remember how you used to pick on me and irritate me SO BAD when we were kids, and you thought it was SO FUNNY. Haha looking back now i dont even know why some of the things you did got under my skin so bad. Probably just because that was your intention lol. I would give anything just to hear you say "ARRRR SHLICKAA!!" one more time. You were a wonderful father, uncle, son, and brother. Addy boo misses you so much and JJ saw a picture of you and him and he kissed you, just yesterday. I wish you could be here to watch him grow and give him his first hair cut.. But i know you're watching over us all. We miss and love you so much Chris. See you on the other side.

There are so many little things you said and did that I took for granted. Now that you aren't here to tell me I'm the most wonderful mother in the universe, I really want to hear you say that again.
I already miss hearing you laugh and play with your kids. I'll never forget watching Kimber defect from mine and her Daddy's kickball team to yours because you had all the neighbors' children beating us! Or hearing you tell Isaiah that if you had it to do all over again, you wouldn't be so hard on your teachers, you realize they are human and make mistakes; that you would listen, obey the rules and learn all you could.
I'll miss our family vacations to FL and surfside, being beach bums.
Yesterday, the storage shed you and your brother built made me bawl. Today
I saw the gas can you hid behind the recycle bin. Boo hoo. I know the memories will get less painful. I know that your passing will be turned around to bring our Heavenly Father Glory because He does not lie. He promised that all things would work together for the good of those that love Him and are called to His purpose....I hope people remember you pointed them to Jesus. I love you infinity. Mom

I met him in unusual circumstances and only knew him briefly. He was a gentleman from the moment I met him. I had just started a job that I was noticably uncomfortable in. He would always check on me and make sure I was okay. He was hilarious, always joking around. He would tell me about his loving family, and his reason for living- his kids. His family was his entire world and all he wanted to do was make them proud. I didn't talk to him much after I quit that job, but I never forgot him. He was one of those people that are just warm and genuine. Men like him hard to come by and impossible to forget. He was truly one of a kind. My condolences to his family and everyone who loved him.

We have known each other over a decade. These past few years we would catch up every now and then on messenger. Sitting here reminiscing, Miss the days of you, Me, and Candace hitting up the pool halls. I have so many other memories that I will forever cherish in my heart. R.I.P you are forever missed
