I'm so proud of who Tad became during his life. He took on challenges that were bigger than life itself. I learned courage from him, I miss him.

Tad-my sweet Cuz!! You will be missed. Though I havn't seen you for several years, I will not forget your sweet smiling face. And I am forever grateful how you were there for me when I had to start at Marana high as a junior. It was difficult, but you were more than my cousin, you were a great friend and helped me make new friends there. I am glad to have been part of your life and have you as family. Love you sweet Cousin!!
