Evan, I can’t believe it’s been a month since you’ve been gone. We all miss you so much. But I am so lucky to have grown up with a cousin like you. I have so many fond memories from our childhood. Like the time I begged you to let me play your new guitar and then I accidentally broke the string (you didn’t get mad, you were always so sweet to me). Or playing outside with Lauren and wanting to play with you and all your friends because I thought you guys were so cool and old. Or the big family vacations we all went on. You are such an amazing person and cousin and I will forever live my life hoping to be half as awesome as you are. Thank you for growing up with me and thank you for blessing the world with your selflessness and kindness for 23 years. We miss you and love you beyond words. Until we meet again, big cousin. If only heaven wasn’t so far away. 💜

There is not a day, an hour, a minute or a second that goes by without you in my thoughts. I miss you so much, it hurts. We shared so many special moments together that I will cherish forever. 23 years was not nearly enough time with you and I still can’t believe you are gone. I look forward to the day I will see you again my sweet boy.

Love you so very much,

Dear Evan,
It has been nearly 4 weeks since you left this earthly home. I am left here in a state of overwhelming sadness and disbelief. People tell me that it will get easier with time, but I think that is what we tell each other to help us move forward. I am told that eventually the remembrance of happy times will overtake this grief. If this is so, I certainly have a lot of great memories of our time together.
Since the day you were born, you were my pride and my joy. You grew to be a sweet little boy, to a kind and respectful youth, to a fine young man. I am very proud of the adult you were becoming.
I have so many happy memories of Little League Baseball, Junior Football, holidays, BILLS games, fishing trips, family vacations, Comic-con, nights out, and just staying home to watch movies. These were happy times, not because we did them, but because we did them with you.
During the last 4 weeks, numerous times I have heard a joke, a sports story, or something of interest and I thought, 'I can't wait to tell Evan'. But I can't. At least not now.
People tell me that there will be happy times again, that there will be new memories. I must trust this to be true. I can't wait to see you again and tell you all about it. Until then, I will keep you in my heart.

Dear brother, friend, and brother in law. You truly are amazing. I have so many good memories of us staying up late watching Pineapple Express and Superbad 1000 times over, going to Bills games and on many family vacations over the years. You always put other people before yourself and always had my back. Recently you bought me a growler of my favorite beer without even asking me if I wanted anything. That same night I texted you and I said thanks for the beer brother, I love you. Your response was I love you too brother I hope you enjoy it. That is just one of many things you would do just because you are such a good person. I have one last thing I would like to tell you. I love you man. You will always be my brother. Rest In Peace.

Not a second goes by that I don't miss you, think about you, or wish that you were here with us. I am so grateful for every memory we shared over the past 23 years. There were so many special memories, inside jokes and funny times. You always made us laugh and once you started laughing it was impossible for any of us to stop. I miss my Harry Potter, movie loving buddy. You were always down to see a movie with me or quote some of our favorite lines. I find myself wanting to text you everyday with something I want to tell you. Life is not the same here on earth and there is a giant hole in my heart. I love you so much.

Until I see you again,

To Deb and family...
I remember being in Dr's office waiting for the call when we knew you were in labor.... "It's a BOY"!
The first memory to come to mind was " little Evan" on our camping trip. Finding sticks and playing in the dirt..
Most of my memories of Evan are hearing them through our talks. You always had a smile on your face whether it was a happy story or a "frustrating " one. He truly was your "Sweet Evan". "..My last memory of Evan at Erin's wedding is my fondest. (Who would imagine it would be the last) He was so handsome and a real "chatty Charlie" that day. He greeted Mark and I at the ceremony with a big smile , a hearty handshake for Mark and a big hug for me. Later at the reception he had a nice talk with Mark and I. I know your lives are forever changed now, please find some peace in these memories from friends and family.
Love you all.
Kelly and Mark Heberlein

Evan there is way too much to put into words. You were like a brother to me. From all the countless bike rides to noco. To crashing at your house. Always giving me a ride to school. All the bills games you brought me too and wrestling shows me you and Bigb went to. You will always be missed man. Power 3 forever ❤️ I love you Davis Family

Often times people thought Evan and I were actually brothers and it wasn’t hard to make that mistake at all. He was as close to me as any of my siblings, in many ways closer then my biological brothers and sister. Endless hours spent laughing at the dumbest things imaginable that no one else would have probably found funny but he and I always managed to make a comedy out of anything. Our YouTube videos are legendary, memories playing hockey and wrestling are never going away even as far back when we first started hanging out having epic battles with all our action figures. I wouldn’t have made it through school without knowing I have the best friend I could possibly have in the neighborhood. I’m gonna miss you bro. Not gonna be a day I don’t think of you especially anytime watching our favorite movies. BFFF
