Remeber the time when we were riding and you had to ride my bike home. Because we got pulled over and I didn't have a license. Just remeber he will always be with us..In our hearts and our soul..Fofos and wamwams for everyone. No deers in heaven to make you crash your bike.. You will always be able to ride along the buffalo. And scratch card forever..love ya always and forever..

Danny: This is to let everyone know how much we loved you. It is so unsettling to know I can't call on to do all the things you did for us, that we couldn't do because we were so far away.

Iknow you are looking down on us . It is the hardest hing in the world to loose son. But all the memories wwill be cherished.

With love MOM
