I will forever cherish the memories we made. It's hard to believe that you are gone. It saddens me that I will no longer get to hear your voice or see your face , but I know you are resting now . I will hold u close to my heart and always remember you. You were the most amazing man I ever met. You always told me I would never meet anyone like you and I believe that is true. U always made us laugh . I loved watching you paint and draw. You had the biggest passion for it. I'm sorry you didn't get to reach all your dreams. To your family, he loved you guys all so much. That's all he talked about . Especially the beauty of his mother. I will miss and love u always my friend..
