    Was shocked to find out you past. We grew up our entire childhood as best friends in Innisborro. You were always the most talented kid of us all. You will never be forgotten and greatly missed.

  4. Huggie,
    That was one of the most difficult nights I have ever experienced. I am glad I could be there by your side. You were a man beyond these times who had an awesome heart. You really wanted people to succeed and grow to their potential. And I knew you as Even, I suppose that describes how you thought the world should be. Rest easy friend.

  5. Hey, Brother…I Love you.. Samone..

  7. Huggie,

    The weight of devastation filled my heart when I heard this news. We go way back, so many memories and in-depth conversations. Although we hadn’t connected in some time, never changed the love we had for each other whenever we did see each other. I ask God to continue watching over all those you blessed with your presence and love. Praying that all our heavenly angels guide you through this journey.
    Rest peacefully my friend, my brother

    Huggie,
    I am absolutely speechless. You have been my friend since I was 7 years old. A whole lot of life has happened since we were kids so our communication wasn’t as frequent as it should have been, but whenever we would reconnect, we were able to pick up where we left off as if no time had passed at all. I just saw you a few days before you left us…I still cant believe it. You were a talented, intelligent and funny. Our conversations over the years were always so meaningful, thought provoking & hilarious. I am beyond grateful to count you among my dearest friends. Our lifelong friendship extended easily to my husband Kane & daughter Kylie and the memories will stay with us forever. You may be gone from this earth, but trust and believe you will always be at home in our hearts. Until we meet again, friend, fly HIGH! I’ll see you on the other side ♡

  9. My heart has a scar from this loss. You and I could talk about anything and everything. You would share your music and fire art! I love you sis is how you said goodbye. From day one that is how we would part. You kept smiling even with the health issue that would knock you down. I’m forever grateful we got to hang out the last time. Who is gonna call me Big Head now? One love always.
