My life will never be the same without you. We had a special bond and even when we had disagreements at the end of the day I knew you had my back and I had yours. What I wouldn't give to hear your voice again but I know you are not in pain anymore. I miss you and love you.

To my little brother. I know there is sorrow in your heart for the love that you have lost. But rest assure that she is resting in the arms of her savior. And though we miss them , we have to know they are in the best of care and they want nothing more then for us to be at peace each day. We can't bring them back but we can be ready to go meet them when our time come. Lean on the Lord and let him give your his peace. For Psalm 23 tells us "The Lord is our shepherd , He gives us His love and peace. Know I love you and pray for you always. I'm here for you .

Love you Brother

13 years ago we became family and I personally wouldn't ever change that! You all accepted me and my brothers into your family with not a single issue! I will never forget all of our family gatherings and how loving you were! I will never forget the smile on your face at Christmas time as you'd watch the kiddos open their gifts, it was like a glowing light. Aunt Linda I love you and know you are greatly missed here, but we know you are no longer in pain and are looking down on each one of us! Go sing in the angels choir and dance in the streets of gold! We love you!

Without you I'd never be here, without your guidance and love I'd never be the man I am today. You taught me to love, live, survive, and everything in between.

We've made so many memories together that I'll never forget. Good times or bad you've been there for me no matter what, and I always knew if I needed to talk, you were a call or a short drive away. You were a shining example of a selfless parent and you and dad have been an example of dedication through any situation.

As you've told me many times, even through our song which I will never forget, everything you do is for us, and your selflessness has made me a better person. I will always remember everything you've done for me and will always strive to be the person you taught me to be. You've fought so hard, now you can be comfortable, happy, and at peace.

Your love was endless, priceless, and limitless and my love for you is the same. I love you mom, always and forever.
