Tragedy has hit once again. I just keep trying to wrap my head around the last two years and then it hits again. I don’t know the answers of why you had to be taken so young. Our family was already so incomplete and now it even more incomplete. Slade Norton you were another one of a kind kid.
Almost like another brother. Heart of gold, funny, my protector from all the creepers when I’d see you out. But I do know I’m going to cherish all the memories, especially All the times we dressed you up as a girl, or when you would sneak into school girls and tell me to hide you. I know you and Brendan Jacob are probably where ever raising hell! Life sure is not going to be the same. Please keep my family in your thoughts.
