My beautiful son .... so kind, gentle and loving. You took a part of me with you.
Every breath I take without you here is truly a struggle. I am no longer the 'me' that was ... I am forever changed. I look where you should be and see only a gaping hole.
Your death has not only left devastation in its wake ... but denied the world a wonderful human being, a man of integrity and compassion.
A son, a husband, a father to be, a brother, an uncle, a nephew, a cousin, a friend .. you were all of these and you are gone. We grieve and try to put some of the shattered pieces back together as best we can. The sadness is overwhelming for those left behind.
I love and miss you more than words can express and I look forward to the day I will see you once more.
