You will forever be missed and will always be remembered. My fiance had created a very close friendship with you, and he will always be thankful and blessed that he had the privilege to meet and get to know such an amazing person. We were looking forward to introducing our son to you, but God decided to take you sooner than we thought. May you rest in peace and prayers to your family.

Our sincere sympathy to the family of a wonderful young man, whom never knew what was ahead. But he is the HERO whom saved more lives than ever before.
A young life taken too soon is very heartbreaking but he now rests in the loving arms of the heavenly Father.
May the family be comforted by our loving Father. My prayers are with the family.
