What can you say about such a short life?
He was easy to love …
He liked to follow his brother and sister around. Wherever they were, he could be found crawling behind. He was the first thing Kinlee asked for each morning. And he loved to climb around on his big brother. He was often seen in Stetson’s lap or laying on Stetson’s belly.
He liked to cuddle, and when he went to sleep, he liked to snuggle up and hide his face in the crook of your arm.
His mama could make him laugh, but his daddy could make him grin.
He had a life well lived. He loved … and he loved being loved.
