From the moment your father and I married, I considered you as one of my sons – both you and your brother. It is with deepest sorrow I mourn your passing. Your Dad and I have holes in our hearts that leave an incalculable emptiness. God bless all your family with comfort and peace – a peace we cannot, at the moment, understand. We love you.
