Although we will never know why you chose to leave us I will say we forgive you. You were my 1st true love. We were 16 and crazy in love. You raised Hayleigh as your own NEVER even thought of her as anything but your daughter . From day one Emma was in love with you, you were here go to her strength..her escape from me lol ..Morgan loves you so much always so happy to drop everything to go visit you. You and Pj were just starting to make up for lost time. I know that you would have never left them if you thought for 1 second that I couldn't handle this and make sure All of them would and will be ok. Youd be so proud of how strong they have been and how much closer they have become. If we did nothing right we co parented like champs. Being parents was our greatest strength and unity. I will miss your stupid jokes your unforgettable laugh and your big heart ..the 1 you wore on your sleeve which led you to your demise. Your death will not be in vain. I had your back in life and will continue to forever. Your lonely no more...I hope your with your mom and julie...until we meet again...look out for our babies xo

If you were lucky enough to know knew how big his heart was and how much he sacrificed to make the people around him happy. I’m stunned to hear of his passing as I just found out this morning and my heart is heavy. I’m sad for his children, even though he gave them all the guidance needed to make it in this world, because he’s gone to soon and he had so much love for them! May he rest peacefully and never be forgotten!!❤️🕊🕊🕊

What A great guy! And a awesome dad! My heart hurts for his kids. We had some deep conversations. He was a great listener. I know your not feeling alone anymore. I wish we stood close. Just send your kids a sign from you letting them know your ok! I will pray for peace and comfort for your family. No one should ever have to feel the way you did. im truly sorry. Tell my mom I love her.
