    Jeff and Sotiria, Kelly, Payton and all those who loved Preston: I was deeply saddened to learn of Preston’s passing. May he be resting in the arms of the angels and may he be at peace. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your beautiful son and brother.

    What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget
