Preston was my best freind. He was the nicest guy you would ever meet. It’s hard for me to think about him now. Every time I do I cry. He was a brother to me.

Preston… I miss you man. I will never forget you. I love you and I can’t wait to see you in heaven.

Our thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. We will miss Preston. Preston was sharing his love of the guitar and was giving my son guitar lessons. My son would practice the new things Preston would show him; since sunday he practices even more. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do for you.

Please know that Preston is remembered as a wonderful young man by his teachers and students. In conversations I had with his many friends, he was consistently characterized as kind, nonjudgemental, caring, funny, and fun-loving. He never said anything negative to or about anyone else. He always found a way to improve the mood of those around him and was admired for his musical talent, for his speed in baseball, and for making half-court basketball shots. I feel that his friends will be forever touched by his posiive spirit. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
