Dear Patty and Family,
By the example he set and the support and encouragement he gave others, Gnat just radiated goodness. No matter what problems everyone else may have been having, he just made everyone around him feel better.
People will say things like “they broke the mold” when speaking of Gnat, but in this case “they” really did. When those who didn't know him hear of his goodness and kindness, they may think he was some kind of boring goody-goody but his family and countless friends will remember that twinkle in his eye and how he somehow managed to have so much fun too.
May you find comfort in those wonderful memories.
