I can’t believe you’re really gone. We weren’t related by blood but you are still family always. You never failed to make anyone laugh or smile. I know you’re at peace now looking down and watching over your family. I’ll see you again one day. Love you.

Life has been way crazy these days. It’s still unbelievable and hard to digest. I’m heartbroken for your wife and your boys. I know what they will be facing in the times ahead unfortunately. Your physical form is no longer here but you have gained your wings and moved on to a better place where you are free of illness. Always wrap your wings around your family and protect them to your fullest ability and provide them with the strength they need to make it through each day. I’m so glad I was able to speak to you 4 days prior. I knew how much pain you were in but still managed to smile. Fly High Kiddo and say hello to Eric for me. 💔 xoxoxo
