"You always had a smile on your face no matter what, you always made us laugh with your silly dances to music in your car and the banter and jokes you cracked.

"You were always there for everyone and went out of your way to make sure your friends were happy.

"You were one of a kind, no one will ever have a big of a personality and heart as you.

"We miss you and love you so much.

Sleep tight buddy, I hope you're doing doughnuts and burnouts in the sky❤"
