No matter what day it is I will always think of you. You gave me everything. I’m hoping I am making you proud. You were my person; still are. I throw my 1’s up to ya every chance I get. I love you brother and miss you so much words will never describe.

Five years. Sometimes, it feels like it's been decades since it happened, and other times it feels like it just happened yesterday, and every day it feels like you should still be here, but you're not. You are so, so missed by so many people who still love and care for you and live their lives to the best they can in your name and memory.

Hey bud. Still here. You're still missed and thought of often. Remember Jesse? He recently became a deputy sheriff in your honor. I know you'd be really proud of him. He misses you, too.

Dear Jack Jack,
Me and Ava miss you dearly. You were a huge support for me and getting into law enforcement. You are one of the sweetest men I have ever met. Ava misses you as well. She still calls you her daddy and asks about you often. your sister called me to let me now how everything was going. We did it!! Justice will finally be served for taking you away from all of us.
'Til we meet again in the sky.

Love your forever,
Your momma Ninja Bear and Ava <3

It's been too long, bud. I still miss you like crazy, and I wish we could have had a lot of adventures together. Been talking to your sister every now and then, one of them - she's a really good girl, she's getting on really well. She's super strong! I know you'd be proud. Missing you always.
