    I’m so sorry for your loss he was such a cool kid when he was younger and a good hearted person he will be missed.

    Cj I miss you every day. I hate that I now live in a world that I don’t have my big brother in anymore. You always put a smile on anyone’s face and you would give the shirt off your back for family. You will be remembered for being the best uncle around! Chloe misses you and talks to you often. Xander runs around and does the dumb bottle flips you showed him, every time he lands one he says it’s for you. Carter even made you some really cute pictures for you to take to heaven. I hate that your gone but I know I’ll see you again one day. I love you big brother!
