Hey mister big guy, I know that Heaven has gained an angel & you must be entertaining everyone up there with all that charisma & wit; but it’s sad for those left behind. gone forever a few days after I could have seen you more… lessons buddy you taught them.
You were indeed a legend on the field #14 but you went far beyond that.
Your true legacy lies in being “The Sweetest Small Big Guy” with the softest heart, selfless, humble & a safe haven – you would protect anyone you cared for.
You forgave quickly, you loved with everything you had, you lived each day to the full and laughed with that voice that made a girl melt, far to often.
Rod Stewart, The Bee Gees, Bruce Springsteen … none of these songs sound the same now that you are gone. And how could i forget the one thing neither of us had/have the thing that made us argue yet you put this stubborn one in her place with kind words and your favourite song “Patience” by Guns and Roses.
And you did teach me “it’s in the words sweetest little angel” “Everybody needs a human touch”…and I will listen again, for now. My hearts aches & I will miss our chats & ur care for me. Your bear hugs. Your Safety. I guess I need that patience now to heal from the loss of your heart.
But your family and best friends have lost a man they cherished like no other … my thoughts & prayers are with them now & always.
Your babies adored their Papa.
May they be reminded of the amazing man on AND off the field, everyday.
Fly now sweet mister, be happy.
Until we meet again.
