    Sweetcakes. No words will ever express how much I’m going to miss you. Coming in almost everyday that I could, which most the time was every single day for the last few years. Our talks at your kitchen table with Lauren or Debra. And just everything that you did or have done for me. No one will ever be close in comparison to you and your kindness and respect in any way possible. Make sure you keep us in check down here and tell all the ones that got there before you we love and miss them just like we do you. Rest easy my guy. You deserve it.

    My heartfelt condolences to the family of such a special human being. For he was truly one of the kindest and most genuine people on the planet. To all those that had the distinct pleasure of knowing him, he was, indeed, a gift from God and his passing will leave a sizable void in the hearts of so many friends and family. May he rest in peace.
