I really like Van, he was always smiling, laughing, ready to have fun. I don't remember anything bad about him. There's a picture of him with 3 of his bud's in the photos page, to me that was Van, a fun guy and so full of life, and really cute too.
I can't believe he's gone, my prayers and thoughts go our to his family, and to us who will miss him, from our youth.

I can't believe your not still with us. Sorry I didn't keep in touch man.

I'll always remember our hanging out together; the fun times, the laughts, the football games, the basketball games, the track meets, and the fusses and fights (though I don't remember what we fussed and fought about).

Your dad saved my grandads life a long time ago and I'm sorry I couldn't save yours man. See you on the other side.
