This is how I choose to remember you. As a loving, hands-on, fun and an adored father. All of those crazy morning drop-offs, forgotten lunches and silly laughs… I will remember Ryder jumping up and running into your arms hard enough to push you over at pick-up time and Avery talking endlessly about how talented you were and how she has a camera too just like Daddy. I will remember you inspiring me with your creativity and telling me I was an artist and should pursue that part of me more when we spoke and I shared my hobbies with you. I will remember how much you loved Amber and how envious I was of the love you both shared… as partners, best friends and lovers. You will be so missed. There is a hole in the hearts of everyone who met you. Thank you for the light you brought to us while you were here. I promise to be a part of Avery, Ryder and your new child’s life and give them love and a warm place to visit whenever they need it.
