He seemed like the type of guy who just exudes happiness. So sorry for your loss, but it seems like just knowing (much less being the mother of) someone like that makes one a much better person. Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

Grandma, I am so sorry to hear about your son, but take strength in knowing you did everything you could to help him. He was truly blessed to have you as a mother and you to have him as a son.

Well, hell now I'll be crying for the rest of the day. Reading words about him was difficult enough to comprehend but seeing his face makes the reality almost unbearable. Now I feel like I knew him. Kinda wish I did because he seems to have had a great spirit.

His ex boyfriend and another friend are flying out for the service. They are staying in a hotel. Another friend is also flying out and he will be staying with us Tuesday night and possibly Wednesday. We have a small house but Lexi offered it to the one friend who is coming by himself. She learned good southern manners from her mom I guess. We'll pick the one up from the airport.

It's going to be hard to meet his ex for the first time. We had wanted him to come with Mando so many times. But we will learn so much about his life in NYC from these three men, so I am very happy that they are able to get here.

YD, your post made me tear up. My son had a wonderful spirit and sense of life as do all my children.

The only thing I would ask of ya'll is that at 2pm on Wednesday, if you can just take a moment and send a prayer up (if you do that kind of thing), I know in my heart I will feel ya'll with me as you have been throughout the months.

I think people at the memorial might think I have lost my mind when one of the music selections is Oh Happy Day. But it's such a joyful song and a celebration and that's what we will be doing. Celebrating his life. He would have it no other way.
