    Syd, you were one of my best friends. You were the most genuine person I had ever met and probably will ever meet. I continue to wish that I had met you sooner, I wish we could have created more memories than we had the chance to make. You lit my day up every single time we saw each other. Your smile was one of a kind, your laugh was truly contagious. Your personality was beyond perfect. You deserved the most in this world. I love you Syd. Gone, but will NEVER be forgotten.

    – Lucas Milliman
