There aren't enough words to describe such an amazing man. Everyone who was lucky enough to have known him and his beautiful family are better for it. The world is a little less sweet without his presence and heaven is shining a bit brighter ♡
Hugs & prayers to all family, Love, Jodi

Always enjoyed visiting you at Highland Ave. You had the greatest toys. A train that ran the peripheral of your living room. Loved that you shared your two-wheel bike with me, as I never owned one.

You were one of my favorite cousins.
