Words fail me!
I will always love him , as he gave me the greatest gift of all: Our son!

A brilliant mind, a kind soul, with an unparalleled zest for life : Music, tennis, drums, people and so much more..Today, I looked at him and it hurt me deeply that I could not see his hands. I will always remember how he would play drums on the wheel while he was driving, whether the radio was on or off. He was a great warrior, and would not accept defeat. He fell and rose, so many times. And each single time he got up, he fought harder and harder... and above all, he was a GREAT father!

'Because I could not stop for Death
He kindly stopped for me The Carriage held but just Ourselves
And Immortality....'

Until then
Love always,
