Hunter was the best cousin i could ask for. He was like a brother to me i live him today is his 21st birthday. I wish he was here so we could celebrate his birthday i could only imagine what we would be doing for his birthday. I miss him more and more every day. Everytime we would go for a family party we would always make me so happy and make everyone laugh. There is not a day that goes by that i dont think of him. I miss him so much there are days where im fine and I think to my self he is in a better place. then there is other days where I get sad and a little angry and think why did he have to leave so soon why couldnt he see what I look like with braces. But in all he is in a better place even though everyone misses him. I can only imagine what he is doing for his 21st birthday up there i bet he is dancing singing and having the best time. Just sitting here typing about him is easy because there is so many nice things to say about him. But i wish i could talk to him one last time and tell him all these wonderful things and tell him how i cant wait to see him. I love you so much Hunter i cant wait to see you Happy Birthday.... Love Jade

Though l didn't really know Hunter, I saw how many lives he touched. Death is a hard thing. Whether you were family, best friends, classmates, or even if the person is familiar. To me Hunter was a familiar face. I knew two of his sisters and had seen him around, but we never really talked. Still, words can not express the sadness I feel. He was and still is an amazing and cheerful person. My condolences go out to Hunter's family, friends, and any others that knew him. He will forever be loved and missed by many.
