Son, wherever you are, my love will find you. Missing you dearly.


Remember is the name of all children. In that name is the seed and the thaw.

He was the best big brother EVER. 


You were who I aspire to be. Now I’ll carry on for both of us.


Life is like climbing a mountain there are avalanches on the way to the top.

Ben Shealy

We miss you. We miss your smile. We miss your laugh. We miss you being on this planet with us — every single moment of every day.


We miss your funny sayings, stories told and retold, how proud your grandchildren made you, and your amazingly beautiful piano playing.

We internalize traits we observe in others as a way to honor and remember them. We are all living memorials.

You will be loved and remembered.❤️

Thank you for the joy and inspiration you brought into our lives. You were a great man – a great artist – a great friend and a great father.


The mountains are calling and I must go.

John Muir

Go ahead, Son. Go home to Heaven.


Live for yourself and your loved ones. Live for the sky, the birds, the wind, the rain, the earth. Live and feel the beauty of the nature. Live for nature if not anyone else but never give up.


Despite tremendous adversity, you persevered and achieved so many of your dreams. Now, your struggles are over. Rest easy, my baby girl. Fly high and know that I will always love you. 


In everything I do and say, everywhere I go and everything I experience, I will try to make you proud. I’ll live this life in your honor for I am blessed to be your mother.  

Alice Keyes

You are there. I am here. Worlds separate us. … Yet I say your name, and waves of light wash to me silently from your heart.


I love you more ❤️


We love you so much and have cried many tears.


Your wings were ready but my heart was not.


I was still the boy on your shoulders, and when you disappeared, I fell. 


I know my father would be proud of me. I am proud that I carry a part of him inside of me and see him in the gentleness of my children.


I will be forever grateful to have been your mom. I will spend the rest of my life honoring you and trying to be more like the amazing person you were. Till I see you again! I love you, my boy!


And in the end, I will seek you out amongst the stars. The space dust of me will whisper ‘I love you’ into the infinity of the universe.

David Jones

… heaven is even more beautiful now that you’re there.

Let me say good-bye again.
A minute more,
a moment,
a chance to see. . .

Your absence has gone through me like thread through a needle. Everything I do is stitched with its color.

WS Merwin

I want to let you know, that I’ve stopped wishing I could die. Instead, I seek to honor your life by continuing to live mine in the best way I know how. 


We miss you beyond words! 


Part of our legacy will be telling our loved one’s story, the good and the bad. We are the truth bearers now, the ones who can keep their memories alive and bring a cautionary tale to others.


To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.

Forever loved

Forever missed

Forever remembered 


Despite life being such an effort, you persevered and achieved so many of your dreams. Now, your struggles are over. Rest easy, my love, back in the arms of God.

Peace be with you, beautiful son and brother.


We shall never be ashamed of your choice, just heartbroken forever.


He was first to be there with a warm hug, a smile, or some off-the-wall joke or one-liner that would instantly raise our spirits. That’s who my son was.


… for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.


I miss you Dad.  😥xx💔


Her absence is like the sky, spread over everything.

C. S. Lewis

I thought of you today
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.


If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. 


Have Peace
Have Understanding
Have Acceptance


They didn’t know him, yet they honored him with their words and tears. In their minds, how he died bore less importance than that he died.

We put you in the ground … but I see you in the stars.


Hope you are okay. Hope I see you again. In a better place. I hope. 


Let no one forget. Let nothing be forgotten.

Olga Berggolts

Your easy beautiful smile that would light up a room and your gentle heart will never be forgotten. We carry you with us, always and forever. Until we meet again. We love you.


The world is a little darker without you in it.  

Forever Your Loving Daughter

You are my greatest gift!


A loving son, brother, friend and uncle.  Why did you have to leave us?


The legacy of love and life that he and I shared together is so much bigger than his death. His life meant – and means so much more than that moment in time where it ended.

In Shock

My son knew I could survive his loss. I miss him, cherishing every moment and memory. I love him enough to let him go and be at rest, free from his pain.

His Mom

It is my hope and dream that, as we heal our wounds, we become kinder and more loving. Let it begin with me.

Iris Bolton

Although your music stopped, the melody softly lingers.


We still walk along side by side, he on his side of the universe and I on mine.

As much as I miss you, I’m thankful for what you taught me while you were here, and what you’re continuing to teach me now that you’re gone.

A huge piece of our life is gone with your passsing. 

You are the love of my life and I miss you more than words could ever say. Thank you for all you did for me and for loving me.


You spent your life trying to save others. My regret is that I couldn’t save you.
