Our families cannot articulate the grief we feel deep in our souls, just hearing his laugh, seeing his smile… his tiny self in our big world. He may not be with us, but his memory will always be in our hearts. 

Our families would like to express our gratitude and love for the overwhelming support we have received during this trying time.
