  • Rest peacefully sweet baby cousin May God bless your children with love and comfort forever more

  • When I heard the news of your passing it really hit home. Although we had only kept up via Facebook the last few years you were literally my very first best friend in life. We grew up right around the corner from each other, were in the same classes and our birthdays were 3 days apart. You and your family were like family growing up. Your house was where I learned to play Nintendo. Ahh I wish we could laugh at this together. I wish you were still here.

    The Family I am so sorry for your loss. I pay God gives you peace and healing. I know one day we will meet again.

    Rest in perfect peace my friend.
