    Memories of you at 5yrs old terrorizing your cousins on Northfield. Memories of you learning to play the guitar and your trains in the basement on Sorrento. Memories of your visit to Texas, the laughs and smiles we shared throughout the years. I'm going to miss you immensely but I know your Mother greeted you with loving arms💔💔
