He loved food and whenever he saw someone eating he went straight for their plate no matter what was on it. He was so full of love. He spent the majority of his days giving out hugs and kisses when he wasn’t playing or eating. Though his life was short lived here on earth it was beautiful. He impacted everyone who got a chance to be around him just with his smile alone.

Little Did We Know :
Little did we know that morning that God would
call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone. For part of us went
with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, you are
always on our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
