I miss you Bubby. I was proud to call you son. You brought joy and laughter to my life. I was ready to teach you to drive and to take you fishing and take you on your date. You was taken to soon and please look down on us from time to time especially your mom because she loved you and she isn't the same now that you're gone. I love you son.

Baby mama loves you so much. You was my life and my world. You was my everything. I miss you so so much. You was taken from me way to soon and I promise I will see you again soon honey. You were my angel on earth and your my angel in heaven. Give granny and grandpa and daddy my love.
In your life you touched so many.
In your death many lives were changed.
You were an amazing son and young man.
Without you here, our lives will never be the same. We miss you more than words could ever say. Even more with each and every passing day. We just hold onto the memories that we made and
All the promises God so graciously gave.
Resting assured when Jesus comes there will be no more sadness, No more goodbyes, just life together eternally with Jesus by our side
