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


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.


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

Laurie E

Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you. I love you, son. Till we met again.


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.


Love never dies.


You are my greatest gift!


You will always be my Beautiful Boy. XOXO


My mom was my best friend I could talk to her about any and everything.

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


Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday.


You always watched over me as my dad, you were the best!! And now you continue to watch over me as my angel. I will forever be your sunshine and you will forever be in my heart ♥

Although your music stopped, the melody softly lingers.


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