One of my favorite times is Christmas which makes the photo of you holding 5 week old Don with grandpa Santa standing by you the best until you with Jessica! The love & smiles was always on your faces. You were a beautiful soul that showed your kindness & happiness to all that met you. The dedication & warm relationship with your mom was truly unmatched. Friends were more than that, they were family because you made it so with your Big heart! I guess Jess told of your phenomenal baking skills when she reached Heaven so you went to be her backup & Wow them with your cooking & baking!! God's loving hands must have given you that Special jeweled crown that had been reserved for you. We'll watch over your mom & will be reunited with you again in Heaven! All my Love

I'm so glad that you were so "special" & a great sister to them! I definitely appreciate the fact that you were there for him after the loss of Jess. I know that you will be there for Jo too because you are so much like them!

Aunt Darlene Douglas Dec 3 2020 12:00 AM

Brother, I hope that you and Jess are reunited wherever we all end up. Whether that's Heaven or Valhalla. I hope you're both at peace and cookin' up a storm and cracking jokes. I will miss you man. Your strength, kindness and caring are something that this world sorely needs more of. You were like a big brother to me, and a great friend. I won't ever forget you. You've made too big of an impact on me for that to ever happen. I'm eternally grateful that I not only knew you and Jess, but was able to be involved in your lives for the short amount of time I was.

I love you brother.
