To my “LB” (Little Brudder), my bestest friend, my protector, my heart, & my everything. I told all my secrets to you. There’s nothing you didn’t know about me. Nothing I didn’t know about you. Thank you for being the best little Brother a Sister could ever have. I’m not sure where we’ll go from here without you. Life will never be the same. God thought I needed another angel & he chose the best. My last words to you were “I Love You” a few hours before you passed & I want you to know that I’ll forever love you & I am truly lost without you. This seems like a bad dream that I keep waiting to wake up from. Although I haven’t really accepted your passing yet, it brings me a sense of peace that you are not suffering anymore and I know you are up in heaven with Jesus & all of your beloved friends & family making beats, playing music, & reminiscing about good times. Happy & smiling down upon us. One day we will all be together again, but until that day comes, I will forever be truly heartbroken LB. Please always be with us & keep us safe & reassure us all that you are happy once again. I know in my heart that you are finally at peace now. Thank you for always being there for me. I will forever cherish all our wonderful times we shared together. Until one day we meet again, I will forever keep you in my heart! “I love you the mostest infinity LB”!!! Rest easy Little Brother & fly high my beautiful angel!

We were just semi grown kids having a sleepover at our first apartment. You drove from Marysville and didn't have any clothes. I still don't know why you didn't ask Bob for some pajamas...but I'm glad you didn't. These were the good times. Rest Easy

I’m so sad that my dad passed away. He is my only dad. I didn’t see him much but he’s still the best dad and you can’t change my mind. I hope he’s happy where he is and that he knows I miss him a lot. I hope I will be able to see him again because I love him a lot and i hope to see him again. I love you dad and I hope you see this message.
