    So hard to believe he is gone. I will never forget his huge infectious smile. I know young people that looked up to him, older people that were amazed by him, friends that were happy to be around him and I know everyone that met him loved him. So hard to understand, my heart hurts for those that were close to him. Rest in peace, heaven is a better place with that angel there.
