Always in our hearts

My deepest Sympathy to the family. I remember the campouts we had years ago. He was the life of the party. 

I know he will be with you always. He'll be that unanswered whisper you hear. The touch on your shoulder when there is no one there. Your memories will keep him alive in your hearts forever.
