    I knew your son as a co-worker and what a great guy he was. Apparently his parents and family raised him very well because he grew up to be a lovely human being. I know your son will miss you but I know that you probably left him with so many lovely memories. May God bless you and keep you at his side and may you watch over your son to protect him always.
