Even if I havent seen Ian in years, he will always have a permanent piece of me. I will always remember our karaoke car rides to nowhere, and him poking fun of my hair pieces and my crazy choice in boys. I will never forget his laugh and the way he lit up a room. Im a better person for knowing Ian , and for that I will always be thankful.

Ian was a beautiful soul with a wonderful laugh. I will always be grateful for the time he spent with my sons - his cousins Lee and James. In particular I will never forget how he spent the evening in the emergency room with Lee and me when Lee fell off of his scooter and needed 10 stitches in his chin. It was a scary day, but Ian kept Lee laughing the whole time. He will be missed.

His smile was everything. Every time I seen him on Penn State Campus he would wear that bright smile.

Ian, for last week, life has been like a dream I'm trying to wake up from. A lot of reflecting on the times we had and the memories we shared. You always opened up your doors for a friend in need and lent anyone your ears to listen. Been listening to Drake a lot since hearing the news, because you were the one who put me on to him. I remember that "Ohhhhh" moment when you told me Drake was the same Drake from Degrassi LOL. I can hear you still bursting with laughter when I finally got the connection. I love you so much and will miss you profoundly my friend. Rest In Peace Ian and until we meet again
