Kyle was my brother, and friend. He was such a amazing person with a big heart. I and many others wished that we could have had more time with him. He made alot of people's days. Even through his hard time he always thought of others. He will surely be missed.

So many memories and even though I’ve got small hands, I’ll hold onto all of them for both of us. I still can’t believe it. I hear the little things you’d say all the time just like you’re here. “No one is ever thinking about nothing.” Oh how you were right. You will always have a big piece of my heart in your wallet. One of the most human, talented, caring and loving people. You’d put anyone out of charisma and were always humble about it. Oh and your laugh could fix anything no matter what. I wish I had more time. I wish a lot of things. The world has lost a truly beautiful soul and will always be absent a certain beauty for a lot of us now. I’m thankful, truly for 14 years of love and friendship. I’m grateful to have known you. You were like a beautiful summer thunderstorm, thanks for showing me how to dance in the rain.

Oh sweet Kyle. Where do I began? From the day I met you, you were always so sweet, caring, and compassionate. Never wanting anyone to have a frown on there face and if they did you were wanting to fix it. I have never met someone so positive and always making you look at things in a different perspective. Long talks with you, tears, hugs, lots of smiles that I will never forget. You truly stole a piece of my heart and I will never forget you. This world has lost such a beautiful soul and to know you for the short time you were here was a privilege. Love and miss you so much Kyle. RIP ❤️
