Losing a child is the hardest life experience but your immediate response, compassion, love for our family, and concern throughout made everything just a little more bearable. Our entire family counts you as one of ours.
The memorial service you put on helped heal so many. Now we really know what is meant by Gator Nation – a Gator Nation of love.
