I remember this young man when I was a teacher assistant. He had the cutest round face and a wonderful heart. He will truly be missed but never forgotten... I pray that God will comfort you daily and guide you. It was a tragic loss but I know that God will keep you and your family in perfect peace if you only lean on him. I will continue to pray for you and your family. God Bless You all!
