He was perfect.

The impact he had was great:

"He did more with his 20 years of life, than most people ever could with 100 years. He was actively charitable. He traveled the world."

He was also incredibly creative.

"He made creativity and art his life's mission, and he encouraged others to do the same.

Of course, I am devastated. I will be for the rest of my life." She wrote.

She found a silver lining.

He was sunlight wearing shoes.

I can confidently say, he wants us to celebrate, grow, and persevere."

She was happy and grateful.

He was happy."
