She continued: “Are you going to go check on your little brother who adores you and who will come to your room without stopping to play Fortnite or wrestle on the floor, while you are hugging your best self?” You have always been there for everyone. You were the best little brother to Kobe, and the best big brother to Hector and your other brothers.
“You were never shy about showing your emotions in public – you were big and strong but so soft and with an endearing personality. You protected everyone with your big, kind heart and your beautiful smile that lit up the room and everyone’s heart as well. You were always there for everyone.
“I will miss every piece of you. My heart is broken and I wish I could bring you home with me where you belong. I wish I could hear your singing and your laughter in your room again. I walked into the wet bathroom and the piles of towels I had left on the floor. I phoned at 5 p.m. ‘Just calling my mother To say I’m on my way home, what time do you get off work?” I can never accept that you’ll never come home. I’d give anything to have you back, anything.
“Papa says he’s so proud of you, your racetrack days will never be the same, your million questions about fast cars and the amount of Instagram messages you sent him. He’ll never have them again and he’s truly broken. Papa will keep all your memories close to his heart – he “You were just like him, carefree, silly, and dangling with your long limbs. We will all make you so proud, as you have made us. You had so much to offer life and should never have been taken away.”
“Your life was just beginning. Daddy and I watched you grow from our sweet little baby into the most beautiful, handsome young man. Your life was just beginning – you were saving so you could buy the Crosser you always wanted and insure your car. Your face would light up the world when you talked about all your hopes.” And your dreams, and you have achieved them all.
“I love you so much, my dear, my ole, my world, my brown-eyed son. You had the prettiest locks of curly brown hair, but most importantly, you had the purest hearts and the purest intentions. ‘Us against the world,’ we always said, ever since you were A baby to this day. Love you always, Mama xxxxxx.”
