    Go rest high on that mountain my wonderful nephew. I am sure you and your dad will find a fantastic place in heaven to fish. Thank you for the beautiful memories we shared.
    I pray God give your mother and siblings a peace that passes all understanding. Even though we know you are in Heaven you will be missed here on earth. You lived life your way and it was a beautiful life.. Farewell my dear nephew until we meet again at Heaven’s gate.
