|I still have the drawing in this picture|
|Learning how to ride a bike - one of my favorite days|
He was so musically gifted that he could play any tune on just about every instrument just by hearing it. He was the best nephew: sweet, funny, goofy, thankful, protective, smart, talented, caring, responsible and polite. He was the type of son I hope to have one day. The one that hugs you so tightly when you see him, or yells your name when he sees you across the room via Skype, holds open every door for you, and carries your luggage from the car to your room without being asked.
|The prettiest blue eyes - I remember tickling him right before this picture|
|The first time I realized he was taller than me|
|So much taller|
Things that make me happy are his smile, that Sam deployed which made me visit home more giving me quality one-on-one time with him, that he saw the beautiful island of Hawaii and learned how to surf, that he became a lifeguard, that God made it snow in Georgia this winter for him to play in with his siblings, and that he was able to spend his birthday and Christmas surrounded by his family.
|Always stylin' and helping me stay up with the trends|
Until I see you again my sweet, sweet first nephew.
