What a beautiful soul you were, my dear friend. I’m so sorry you left us so soon. Your absence is leaving a huge void in so many of our lives. I truly pray that you knew how loved and cared for you were. You touched my heart, and the hearts of so many. You were gentle, kind, and loving and I will miss you dearly.
I remember being so impressed and proud of the way you expressed your most inner thoughts, insecurities, and fears so openly and honestly.
You effortlessly gave sincere compliments and I saw you praise others when they needed to feel uplifted. You were generous, gentle and goofy and silly.
I loved to hear you work your thought process out loud and admired the way you’d pause and listen for feedback. I will always hold our long talks close to my heart. I was so proud of you.
Yes, you loved your music and sang all the lyrics …to all the songs (old and new). I just felt so happy to be around you. I’m so sorry you left us this soon. But I feel incredibly privileged to have crossed your path and will hold your warm smile, along with your dorky comments in my heart forever. Rest in peace my sweet friend. I love you.

I pray that your family and loved ones find peace, healing and comfort.
