His Heroes: “My heroes are my Mom and Dad, my brother Ryan, my Aunts Stacy and Kim, my cousin Corey, my best friends Stephen and Dylan, all my girls, and all my friends who love and miss me. I am with you always, and I love you.”
"I am now an ethereal angel, and I watch over and guide those who I love and who love me. I will always be with you, and I will be there for you whenever you need me. Do not weep, but if you must, always know that your tears will be swept away by my eternal love for you. Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am in a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush Of beautiful birds of circling flight, I am the star-shine of the night. I am in the flowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I do not die."
