    My son passed away at the age of 29 years old.

    Son, I wish I could wake up and see you standing there.
    Then I would know that it was just a nightmare.

    Son, I remember when you were small and how you would hold my hand,
    and as you grew older you became my friend.

    Son, I have 29 years of memories that I will treasure and keep safe in my heart.
    We share a bond that time and distance can never break apart.

    Son, oh how my heart aches so.
    I would love to have you back and never let you go.

    Son, where there was happiness,
    now there is sadness.

    Son, how I long to hear your voice and see your beautiful smile
    and have you back for just a little while.

    Son, until that day I see you again,
    I will look to the sky and search among the stars for my son and friend.

    My heart is heavy with sadness and tears of Ethen’s passing.

    I’ll remember him in many positive ways-with a big smile and a good heart.

    Praying for your healing, comfort, strength and peace during this painful time.

    Sending love and hugs.

    May he rest in peace.

    It’s been some time, but I always hoped you were okay after I moved away.

    I remember how I was able to talk to you without no issue. I remembered how you became my friend back in elementary school when everyone else picked on me.

    You had a big heart and could make anyone smile when they were down. I’m sorry I didn’t get in contact with you after I moved away. I know you’re in a better place now, but I will miss you.

    Sincerely yours,

    It was nice knowing you. Even though I just met you a couple of years ago. You were a funny easy going guy. RIP.
