It’s been 13 years since I’ve wrote on this page and 17 years since we’ve lost you. For 17 years friends and family have been coming to this page to reflect on how much you not only meant to them, but also the impact you’ve had on their lives. It’s great to see such warm-hearted stories about a man I only knew for 9 years.

I am very grateful for all of the stories shared on this page because now at 26-27 years old, I can truly admire just how phenomenal you were, not just to me, but to everyone you’ve encountered.

I really appreciate everyone leaving kind messages about my father and continuing his legacy over the years.

Forever loved and in our hearts <3
