Even though when we were younger getting into fist fights in the yard until you got bigger than me you may have thought I hated you, it's the furthest from the truth! I've never been more proud of you! You were a great dad, great ball player, and always strived to climb the ladder to success. I was so proud to call you my brother! I've never felt a bigger hole in my chest as I do now! I miss you so much! I know they say time will heal, but I'm not sure it will! I will do my best to be strong and be there for your girls! We all love you!

To Ethan:
Nothing will ever describe all of the feelings for me right now. I've never had to go a step without you... half of my soul is gone and my heart hurts so bad right now. I know you're in peace now, though. I hope you know how much you are loved. I'll still be wishing you happy birthday on our day. I love you more than anything, brother. We're all still here for you and I hope you're still looking out for us.
To my family:
Nothing brings you closer to each other than tragedy. I've never said "I love you" so much before. I do, though. I love you all and I'm here for each and every one of you. Now is the time to lean on each other... not only confide in one another, but to also share memories and recall the good times. He's not hurting and he's looking over us. He sees the love... I'm sure of it. Love you guys.

I remember swimming in the pool in the back yard and Ethan pushed a Nerf baseball bat under water and it came back up and broke his tooth. We went to my uncle's office and he made an acrylic fix for it. But the look on Ethan's face when he realized what happened. Lol. I will remember that forever. I am so sorry for your loss. Ethan will live on in our memories and our hearts.

Kristen, Henley, and Peyton, my heart breaks for you from this loss. Ethan was deeply loved by you, and his presence will be forever missed. Hold on to the positive memories, and know that you are surrounded by so many people that love you and will take care of you during this difficult time.

Rest easy Ethan, you were a great man and I’m fortunate our daughter Peyton was able to call you ‘Daddy Ethan’ you were a great father to her and stepped up to raise her in our blended family situation! You were a great man, great father, and all around great person! Our talks every day picking up the girls, prying them apart from each other with their “just one more hug from sissy” I’ll never forget! You will be missed man, you touched so many lives in more ways than one! Rest easy and fly high! Watch over our girls

I remember when you were born and you two had more hair than I did, but anyway it was great watching you grow up into wonderful adults and parents and I should never outlive my nieces and nephews but sometimes God has a plan . I think his plan for Ethan is to watch over Henley from above and all of his Sister's and Mom and Dad, we will miss and love you until we come and meet you up above. You will be missed by all. Love Uncle Vinnie .
