Although your music stopped, the melody softly lingers.


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

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


Daddy, I understand.


The world is a little darker without you in it.

Forever Your Loving Daughter

Her absence is like the sky, spread over everything.

C. S. Lewis

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.


Love you. Long Time ❤️

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.

In Shock

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.


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.


May the four winds blow you safely home.

Franklin's Tower by the Grateful Dead

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.


Go ahead, Son. Go home to Heaven.


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.


Let no one forget. Let nothing be forgotten.

Olga Berggolts

Me and your baby boys will be missing you bad until the day comes that we meet again!


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


I’ll see you on the other side, brotha!


Till Valhalla, my son.


No One Else Can Play Your Part.

Wendy Wenger

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!


We miss you beyond words!


Peace be with you, beautiful son and brother.


Have Peace
Have Understanding
Have Acceptance


Missed & Loved Beyond Words.


I was forever changed when you came into my life, and forever changed again when you left.


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

WS Merwin

One day, I hope to only think of the good, but for now, I struggle with the why.

Laurie E

Your wings were ready, but my heart was not.

Broken Hearted Forever

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


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

Jan McDaniel

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

Love you to infinity and beyond ❤️

Broken Hearted Forever

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


I could not follow you to Viet Nam. I cannot follow you now. Although at times I want to. … I will pick up your missions of P.O.W. and M.I.A. And help honor you. I wish you would have stayed.

Sharon, Your Loving Sis

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.


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

Thomas Campbell

I’m gonna love you till my heart stops beating.

Carol McCoy

I love you more ❤️


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.


Much loved. Much missed. Forever in our hearts.

Susan Auerbach

Goodnight moon. Goodnight stars. Goodnight my son, my heart. I hope to see you in my dreams. Love you always.


Your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. 



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

Laurie E

And it’s okay to be sad, but you can’t love someone only with tears. There’s got to be laughter too.

Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina

You will always be my Beautiful Boy. XOXO


Until we meet again, my grumpy old man. You are forever in my heart.💚


I miss you, my friend, forever in my heart. ❤️

When the music’s over, turn out the lights.

Jim Morrison

I know everything has a beginning and ending. Let’s be clear my love for you will never end.


We love you the same as if you were alive today. We miss than any words can describe.❤️


In a field of roses, you are a beautiful smiling sunflower with a heart of gold.


The fierce, never-ending love that I feel for my son is the very thing that sustains me every day.


Sadly Missed.


Heaven is even more beautiful now that you’re there.

A loving wife

Your wings were ready but my heart was not.


I miss you Dad.  😥xx💔


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


We may not know how to find light in darkness, but it can be found; it can be created, if we are committed to the light.

Rabbi Baruch HaLevi

He was the best big brother EVER.


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

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


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


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 am forever broken by your departure from this world.


Forever loved

Forever missed

Forever remembered 


Your loss is immeasurable. But so is the depth of the love you leave behind.


Your life and death won’t be without meaning. … If even one life can be saved from telling our story, then the ripples of your legacy, your life and even your loss will be without end.

Deborah Greene

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28

I miss you, buddy.


Go in peace, my beautiful nephew. XO


To the world he is just a man, but this man meant the world to us!!!


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


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.


Mom will always love you ♥️


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Reinhold Niebuhr

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.


Right now, my beautiful boy is walking through the Pearly Gates of Heaven. He is walking straight up to Saint Peter with an extended hand and saying: Hi! My name is Pat.

Steve Shannon

I love you. I always will. I wish you more peace and comfort than anyone could ever imagine.


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

I only miss you when I’m breathing.


You will be loved and remembered.❤️


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

Sarah Crossan, "Moonrise"

Every minute of every day you are loved and missed, my beautiful son. God keep you safe and loved, forever.


I will always honor your memory.


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.


We love you so much and have cried many tears.


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

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


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.


She had the curliest hair. Her smile would light up the room.

Her mom.
