A note from mom:

Gavin, I love you. Every day of your life, I've loved you. I loved you when you made me angry. I loved you when you didn't want to be loved. I loved you when you made me cry. I loved you. I love you today, yesterday and I will love you for the rest of my days. I hope you're at peace in Heaven and you get to see lots of beautiful sunsets. I will see you again someday, Gavin.

Love you always and forever,

Mom xoxo
