Condolence & Memory Journal

There are so many memories with you. Even tho we lived so far apart, I was lucky enough to somehow always be around you and Sara. From playing with u in the pool, to taking u to amusement parks, movies, sightseeing or just dinner, we always found a way to be around each other.
I miss you so much already. Our birthdays just passed and u were almost always one of the 1st ones to wish me happy birthday; whether thru text, Facebook or a phone call, u always said "Happy Birthday Aunt Dana, I love you!"
You loved being the goofball around me and your Mom. Even when u were little u just had that way about u. You had one of the biggest hearts of anyone I've ever known. You'd give the shirt off of your back if that meant making someone else happy.
There are so many things that always remind me of both u and your sister. Like the time u were about 8 years old and we were eating cereal in the morning. I only used a little bit of milk in my cereal and u looked at me with this little funny look on your face and said "that's weird!" which of course caused Sara to get a funny look on her face. I just laughed. To this day whenever I have cereal, I always think of that moment.
Then there was that time that I was cooking eggs (u were about 10) and u asked me how I got them so fluffy. I told you my "secret" was adding a little bit of milk in them. I found out just a few weeks ago that u cooked your eggs with milk in them too, which brought a huge smile to my face.
I'll always remember the time I drove my convertible out to visit u guys and u, Sara and I went to Hollywood to sightsee. At some point during the drive Nelly's song Country Grammar came on and we all just started dancing in the car with the top down and our hands in the air. From that point on whenever I heard that song, I thought of that day.
And your big bear hugs, I always loved them!
I'm going to miss you little man but I know we'll see each other again one day. Until then, I love you to the moon and back!
