My beautiful nephew, I am honoured to have shared the life you had. A crying baby boy to the beautiful man you grew into. Generous, loving, kind and caring. Taken from us far too soon. I treasure the memories I have of you growing up, to the precious time we spent together in Washington. You take a piece of me with you, and you will forever be in my heart. ❤️
