"You were human, you had flaws but never once did I doubt the friendship we had," Emma shared. "I’ll always cherish the times I got to spend with you."

She added that they'd planned "so many backtracking trips" but were only able to go on one together before his unexpected passing.

"I'll miss your goofy dad jokes, our coffee runs, the dinners we shared," she recalled. "The times we watched movies and you always let me put messy face masks all over our faces."
