"Wow sweetie my heart breaks for so many reasons. First for your family of course. I know how much your Dad meant to you im glad you at least got the chance to see and talk with him. My heart breaks for your friends I know just how much you meant to my kids and of course some of your other friends. My heart breaks for were so happy when we were all out in Vegas. You made my trip out there extra special. Thanks for all the laughs, the chocolate factory and cactus garden(you were so excited), for keeping me company when I didn't have any, and for being there for my family I know that they will always cherish that trip with you as will I. My heart goes out to anyone who loved you as you were a very beautiful soul and this worldcwas robbed of you way too soon. My sincere condolences to the family. I hope it can bring a little comfort for you to know that the last week he had was one full of good times. He got to do some shopping in Vegas and got to spoil himself with some stuff he had wanted for some time. He win some money playing his favorite game! He experienced flying over Fremont St with the two best people who considered him family, he saw fireworks and the water show. We had alot of good talks and lots of good food. I know he made a very spec impact on my life and I'm truly going to miss him fir the rest of my life. Don't worry buddy we will honor you always and Vegas will always hold an extra special place in my heart ??. "
