Q had amazing brown eyes with a smile that was so contagious. He was quiet, kind, respectable, smart, and funny. I have his image etched in my heart of him sitting by the fire and widdling. I remember him building forts in Caleb’s room with Aiden . He was very special, and had a light shinning in him. The world is not the same with him not in it.

As a little boy, he enjoyed the aquarium. One day, I fixed fish for dinner but he would not eat it because he thought it was one of my pet fish from the aquarium. He also asked if I would give him my Carnival Glass. I said yes.

Coffee time in this pic with Quentin is one of my favorites…I loved the way his mind worked and the way he made me laugh. He was thoughtful, inquisitive with a biggest gentle heart for others. Thank you Quentin for blessing me in our conversations:) I love and miss you!

Remembering having our PRP parties at the house here in Lincoln. Quentin loved to play Ping Pong. Even as a little kid he was great competition and so much FUN! My heart breaks for you, Craig and Christy. Sending Love and Prayers.

Quinten had a sense of humor. He was polite and fun. We got to send time together thanks to Craig and Kristi’s generosity, in Sedona where he played with my younger kids and treated them so kindly. When I asked Kristi if I should set the thermostat to 69, Quinten giggled. He was so happy and smiley on our trip. I learned that through this pain he began to see people and their pain and his empathy swelled. I learned that he grew stronger in his faith with Jesus this is the blessing out of such tragedy. I cannot express words for Kristi and Craig. My heart is heavy for you all. I left you up in prayers throughout the day with a sad heart. I Love you guys.
