We may have had our ups and down kid, but I always cared about you since I met you, you were the life of everything and knew how to cheer everyone up. As each day goes by I will think about you and pray that your family will be ok and get better with losing you. You were an amazing guy, many love and miss you. Everyone was heartbroke with losing you, that the days may get stronger, but not for awhile this town will only be broken until we accept that you're gone and have to remember the memories we've had with you. I will certainly miss you like crazy with all your sweet comments confronting everyone with "How are you doing today?". Watch over us and someday we will all be up there with you like you were here with us. Miss you and make sure to have fun up there.
