  1. Well my best friend of 40 years, you are now at rest. We will miss you terribly. We will always cherish our times together

  2. Not knowing where to begin … I have a million things to say. I miss you dearly. I know you are watching me as I continue this journey. I will try my best, as I always have. I will not be able to see you but I will continue to talk to you on a regular basis.
    I no longer worry about you but I will always miss you!
    I had only a few things left in life that meant anything to me, now I have one less.
    “Life can’t stop me, it can only slow me down”
    When I am no longer able to spew this phrase I hope we can joke about it together.

    Love Always, Your Son.
