age 19

My dearest love.... We all miss you so terribly. Your brothers and sisters, your dad and I, family and friends, we are all completely devastated with heartache over your absence. My dear boy, from the moment you were born I saw your beautiful uniqueness and treasured your unlimited ability to love everyone around you. You touched so many people with your tenderness during your time with us and we are each far better people through knowing you, loving you and being loved by you. You changed the very way each of us sees life, people, and ourselves through every interaction. Your family, your friends, even your teachers, are all inspired by who you are and your gentle soul, through your love, words, your art, your challenges and your triumphs. You traveled a difficult road by circumstance, one too much to bear at so many points in your short life, and you prevailed at every turn. I am so incredibly proud, honored, and humbled to be your mom, and I know your Dad, brothers, sisters, family and friends share your shining honor as we envelope ourselves in your memory. We carry you, and all you've taught us, in every moment of every day baby. Every single day.

All our love baby.... Mom and Dad (Gae Marie Cannon, David Bates), siblings (Marc Anderson, Marc Cannon,

Lily Cannon, Tiffany Bates), and Grandparents (Mary Miller, Andrea Farewell)
