I wanted to type this the other day, but I didn’t even know where to start. You have always been so pure and caring no matter the situation. You were extremely helpful to my brother when he was little little, you even helped fix his bike and taught him how to wheelie. You would always tell him to say hi to me. I remember when you used to tease me all the time and make fun of how “blonde” I was. You were always sending pictures and making goofy faces. You would always check up on me since the day we even met, Im glad to say that you were a real one, thats for sure. You have always had a special place in my heart. You are always there when someone is down. You would always be the first person to reply when someone needed something. Its still hard to wrap my head around this, but im glad you’re happy now. Thank you for being such a good friend. We have had some good times and everyone that knows you did too <3

Oh sweet Gavin, where do I begin. I’ve known you since you were in diapers. My fondest memory wasn’t long ago- where you hugged me after we exchanged a good conversation. So many times I would come visit and you always came into your parents room. Your family loved you very much. You will never be forgotten. Forever in our hearts 💞

I will never forget the years where we would wake up everyday and immediately text eachother to come over to ones house. I’ll never forget all the reckless things we did when we were young and all the fun things we did some of my greatest childhood memories are with you. I will never forget all the times i would knock on the door and greg would answer and let me in and i’d go in your room and wake you up and we’d hang out the whole day. I still can’t even really get my head wrapped around this whole thing but i really hope you found your peace and i hope your doing good, i love you bro i wish we coulda talked 1 last time, i’ll see you when the time comes.

I always enjoyed having him and the other kids around. I always teased him about school. He was a true friend to my grandkids and I'm so happy I knew him, he was always so nice to me.

That's sweet memory Sydney. Mine is how much I loved getting to help take care of him when he was born a special memory I will never forget. As well how he always wanted me to carry him around and would cry if I put him down when he was little. When he was older is toughness, fearlessness but still his love he showed me everytime I saw him he would hug and tell me he loved me. Even if he didn't see us all time he loved his family and really looked up to dad and his cousins Terry and Anthony how they would all 3 show their love by teasing each other lol
