I was 10 when we lost you and it broke my heart. I loved you so much and thought the world of you. You were so good to me and I am blessed to have so many memories of you, I can still hear your amazing laugh. I think of you everyday. You made such an impression on my life and my heart I named my youngest child Olivia "Lane" and I have told her about you many times. She knows she was named after a brave and wonderful man. Heaven gained an amazing man when we lost you and the world will never be the same.
