This young lad was one of my students in a German language night class I taught. He was only 16 and died of brain cancer.
He fought it so hard. Even coming to class when he could not walk any longer.
He loved reading my books and his set of books he wanted to be buried with. I am so honoured he asked for that.
This will be the first non Mormon service I have attended in 40 years.

A fine young man who will be missed. But I am glad he was nevermo.

Sorry to hear about this. Always sad to lose a student. I had a student with brain cancer a few years ago, but he survived.

You gave him purpose--the exploration of ideas, the exercise of the mind--in his brief time in this life.

Thank you for that great gift.

Sorry for your loss.

It's good to see you were able to be a positive influence in this young man's life.

He was a true hero fighting to the end. Peace, healing, and comfort for you and his family. An untimely death is among the hardest of things we face as members of the human family.

He was mad about motorcycles.
Even though he was not old enough or a Veteran, when my Motorcycle Club found out they Patched him in as an honorary member so in the end he belonged to a Brotherhood a real Brotherhood unlike the Mormon Brotherhood of backstabbing excuses for real men.

I hope you can remember the good things you added to his far too short life, dave.
Be at peace.
