    I can’t believe you are gone. Though our memories will linger on. We will never be apart because you will forever remain in my heart. Words cannot describe how empty I feel inside. And the hurt and tears I cannot hide. The bond we shared can never be compared. I love you.

    My heart and prayers are with you, although I am far away. I still feel sadness of having my son’s heart quit when he was only 50 years and 35 days old. I hope you will eventually concentrate on the smiles you two shared.

    You were such an AMAZING God Father. You showed me what a Fathers Love was all about. I never thought this day would come so soon but, I know you’re in a better place My Handsome Guy. I remember those trips we use to sneak and take to Chicago to do Christmas Shopping and just to catch some of the exclusive deals on Shoes at Nike. You’d say if your God Mom knew I was down here without her she would let me have it. Lol. You would tell me all the time how much you loved my God Mother along with the kids and how you just wanted us to see other places other than Grand Rapids, and everything you do is for your family. You were not only a Father Figure to me but also an AWESOME Teacher. You taught me so much about life and how to get my business in order for me to achieve greatness. Our last conversation was us talking about doing some major things to improve my goals to be successful. Just know I always listen to every word you said Pops and I promise to own up to it and be there for the boys just like you asked of me. You’ll forever live through the ones who loved and cherished you. There was never a dull moment when you were around.

    I love you so much.

    R.I.H God Dad
