12 years, 6 months, 3 days. Run free and find your friends my sweet baby. The last 21 months were a real good fight. You gave it your everything sweet baby. You have climbed some of the tallest mountains, camped in the Rockies, seen blizzards, swam in the ocean, fished, been on a boat ride, traveled across many state lines, seen multiple state parks and rest stops, evacuated from Hurricanes, played with horses, made friends, survived major back surgery, been to baseball games, birthday parties, stay-overs, football games and even watched some golf. You were my whole world, the best buddy ever and... you saved me. You gave me so much more than anybody could ever even want to. You touched many hearts throughout your life. You were such an amazing boy. How did I ever get so lucky. There were times I thought I didn't even deserve such an amazing baby but then I knew, you were here for me. You will forever be in my heart and never forgotten. Dad will grill a hot dog for you buddy and we will always forever fish with you right by our side. This is truly the hardest thing I have had to work through in my life. I just love you baby. More than the stars in the sky....May you rest in peace.
