I Wish I could be there for you the way you were there for me so many years ago when others weren't. Your passing saddens my heart. This shouldn't have happened to such a man as yourself, but you will forever live on in the hearts of your dear loved ones, extended family and friends. R.I.P. brother. You will never be forgotten. Love you.

I will never forget your potential; your drive and your passion for what you were doing. Your physical skills and your intelligent way of thinking always set you aside of your peers. I truly wish you have departed in peace; You will be well missed.
