Hey dad, its Garrett. I just want you to know that you were my bestfriend and I loved you more than anything else in this world. I can't think of one specific memory because we constantly made them. Your were the best dad ever to me and Eli. I will miss you very very much. When nobody else was there, I knew you were. When I wasn't in a very good mood you would find a way to make me laugh or smile in some way. Words cant describe how I'm feeling about all this, just know nobody ever loved you or looked up to you like I did. Forever in my heart, Forever in my mind ~ Garrett

23 years ago today was our first date. We have been through so much together. We have had so many fun times. I will miss him just being there. I still can't believe that this has happened. Even though we were no longer together I always expected him to be there. There is not a song that I don't hear him singing his "own" version of it. He was known to throw in some comedy with it. I will always care for him and miss him. But most of what I am grateful for are Garrett and Eli. Without him, there would be no Garrett and Eli and they are a part of him and myself together. I think that was the best part of us together. We definitely had our disagreements and would not have a problem telling each other so, but we still cared for each other. I will always miss him and some part of me feels empty and I don't think that will ever be filled. But that's fine because that may be because it was only meant for him. I am trying to be positive that he is no longer in pain with those stupid headaches he would constantly have and he is in a better place with his dad and they are happy and shining down on us every day. Just know you are loved and will be missed everyday.

Jamie this is mom, first of all u were my first born, as a baby u were so colicy and cried a lot, your favorite place to sleep was on my chest. As a teen u loved school, playing football and singing in choir most of all u were so social and loved having your friends around all the time. You grew to a young man, worked, started a family and gave me the best gift ever, two boys Garrett and Eli, I love those grandkids so much, and u lived your life for your boys. We spent your last night at Garretts football game. We always spent our time together, u, Chad, Cortney and me. I love u son, so very much. Love always Mom.

Jamie was my best friend we met at T&M and have remained close ever since, we never went more than a couple weeks without talking. Jamie made everyone laugh he loved his boys more than anything and finally found the love of his life. He was always the life of the party, dancing and singing (he had a great voice) I will miss hearing you sing Jamie and hearing your dirty jokes you were always there for me I love you Jamie
