    There are no words that can express the sorrow that we feel for your family. There just isn’t a right thing to say. Know we mourn the loss of your son along with you. Your family will be in our prayers and if we can help please don’t hesitate.

    I remember best, curly blonde hair , horse back ride where we both went flying over the saddle. fishing in the pond behind dads old store at startown catching blue gills. Anytime i was at your house when i was small he always included me in with whatever he was doing even if i was his goofy cousin from n.c. His laugh i will always have in my mind It always made you laugh right along with him. We all have lost a fine friend, brother ,son and cousin, but in our hearts and memories he will always stay.
