His obituary says it all, he was a sweetheart!! It warmed my heart to know how much he loved his family and how much he was truly loved!! How many teens would call their grandmother just to tell her he loved her? The earth has lost a beautiful young man and heaven is rejoicing welcoming him!! I pray for comfort and peace for all his family....the peace that only God can give. Love you all!!
