A letter from Mom:
"Where do I begin, I could talk about you for hours. You were my first born son, my bundle of joy, my Goo Goo. I was so happy when I brought you home to mommy's , your grandma. She would play music day and night, she had me put the radio next to you. I believe that's why you fell in love with music. You were an intellectual person. You had us thinking on a higher level on a daily basis. The saying , Politics and religion are off the table, but not with you Roo;. You were the exception to the rule. You would debate and prove everyone wrong . You were a great mentor, entrepreneur, cherished the little things in life, loved taking photos, and especially loved family time. May you rest in peace my love."
