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

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


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

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

Thomas Campbell

Have Peace
Have Understanding
Have Acceptance


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


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


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


Your wings were ready, but my heart was not.

Broken Hearted Forever

I am forever broken by your departure from this world.


Peace be with you, beautiful son and brother.


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

Love you. Long Time ❤️

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


You will be loved and remembered.❤️


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

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.


Till Valhalla, my son.


Go ahead, Son. Go home to Heaven.


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.


I miss you, buddy.


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


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


Her absence is like the sky, spread over everything.

Missed & Loved Beyond Words.


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

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


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

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.


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

Jim Morrison

Although your music stopped, the melody softly lingers.


May the four winds blow you safely home.

Franklin's Tower by the Grateful Dead

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

Jan McDaniel

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.


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.


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

Laurie E

The world is a little darker without you in it.

Forever Your Loving Daughter

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

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

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

I will always honor your memory.


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.

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

WS Merwin

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

Matthew 11:28

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


He was the best big brother EVER.


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

Sarah Crossan, "Moonrise"

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

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

You will always be my Beautiful Boy. XOXO


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

A loving wife

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.


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.


Love you to infinity and beyond ❤️

Broken Hearted Forever

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


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

Her mom.

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


Much loved. Much missed. Forever in our hearts.

Susan Auerbach

I miss you Dad.  😥xx💔


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


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

We love you so much and have cried many tears.


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.


We miss you beyond words!


I love you more ❤️


Let no one forget. Let nothing be forgotten.

Forever missed

Forever remembered 


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!


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.


Mom will always love you ♥️


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.


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.


Sadly Missed.


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


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.


Your wings were ready but my heart was not.


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


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