It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. A part of us went with you, God took you home. If love could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. Our hearts have a empty space that no one could ever fill. You were taken before your time and we didn’t get to say goodbye. You will always be young and handsome. Your memory will never die.
Forever miss and loved—Mom
