You taught me how to have empathy for everyone around me and you showed me what it feels like to be understood and cared about. You lit up my world and my heart is full of love for you. A piece of you will remain with me forever. I love you indefinitely Harry. You are an angel and you will always be a beautiful person inside and out. Rest in peace.”
