It is hard to put into words what a great companion, best friend & also my brother in the Lord that he was to me in the four years we dated. I have some wonderful memories to help sustain me in the days ahead as I try to fill this great void in my life. Some of his last words to me were, “I am at peace with God & I know where I am going.“ I hope all of you who read this can say those same words. We sat together in Church every Sunday & he would hold my hand when we prayed. I love & miss him already!
