The world is a far better and more beautiful place because you were here.
There are no words to describe how blessed I am to be your son.
I’m so thankful for the countless, amazing memories I will always have.
We saw so many beautiful places.
We shared extraordinary experiences.
You taught me, you guided me and encouraged me to be who I am.
While I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are in the presence of our Lord and experiencing His paradise; I will miss you so very, very much.
I love you always!!!
