This poem has remained in my memory since I first read The Outsiders in middle school. The words are among the first that came to mind when I learned of your sudden death:

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
-Robert Frost

I'm still in a state of disbelief. There was no opportunity to say goodbye, but I blew kisses up to heaven for you as tears streamed from my eyes. Fly high, my nephew. Fly high to be with Him. I know that you're in a better place, resting in His grace. I will smile whenever I think of you or hear your name.

Your Aunt

Be strong, family. That's what Eric would want. Honor him by living your best life. Honor him by being there for his son. Every fiber of my heart is with you during this most difficult time.

To the bereavement family I'm truly sorry that you all have to experience the lost of a very caring and loving person of such tragic moment. I have known this little fella for quite some time and to know that I'll never see him nor you all hurts to the core. You will for ever be remembered for your laughter "E" but to the family keep the faith and keep praying for better days and better nights. May my prayers be with each and everyone of you during this time. You have your wings "E" so fly high above and keep your family wrapped with your love.
