He was selfless, caring, supportive, friendly, thoughtful, loving, kind-hearted, devoted, gentle, and generous. He always had a way of using his witty and silly sense of humor to make others happy and laugh. His unforgettable presence in our lives was a true blessing and he will forever live in our hearts.
