Honey, Dad, Papa, Brother, Friend,
Never a dull moment was spent with you. You made every day an adventure full of possibilities. Dream big, love unconditionally, and live it to the fullest was your way. You found potential in what others found no use, your laugh drew everyone closer, you would give a stranger the shirt off your back if it meant making life a little easier, and your love for your family left us all with an example we should strive to give our families. It's safe to say, you are watching over us; and telling us to "get back to work, it's not going to finish itself!"
