So so sorry for your loss. Ethan was such a great kid! I was so bummed when he started going to Middlebury high school. He was always so funny, and would make a bad day turn into a good day! He was such a pit bull person and it made my heart so warm as they get a bad reputation along with the most abused dog. Ethan had such a big heart, always smiles, and you always knew it was him when you would hear his laugh. Ethan you are going to be missed by so many, but you left lots of great memories with everyone.

Paul, Margaret, Ashley, Oaklynn ,
I am so sorry I can’t be there with you. Please now I am in spirit. Ethan was such a wonderful person, from just a little boy he was always so sweet and caring. He definitely loved his family with every fiber of his being.. Take good care of Emmett he needs all of you too. There really are no words to express my heartache for all of you. I’m sure he’s catching up with all his great grandparents right now 😊
Keep all of your sweetest memories close and let them bring smiles into your hearts now and throughout the future. All my love Aunt Sharon & Carl.

I only knew Ethan for a short period of time but he was one of the nicest guys I have ever met. Reading through the posts on his Facebook it is amazing to see all of the lives he touched. More than I thought possible. He will most certainly be missed. My condolences to his family and friends.

Dear Paul, Margaret, Ashley & Oaklynn: My Heartfelt Heartbroken Sympathy To All Of You. The Loss Of Ethan Cannot Be Effectively Described…We Can Only Say The Complimentary Truths About Your Wonderful Precious Son, Brother & Uncle. He Was A Sweet Child, & I Have Always Been Grateful That You Invited Me To Be With You When He Was Born. I Watched Him Grow & Develop Into A Kind, Sweet Child And Later Know Him To Be A Hardworking Young Man. I And My Parents Always Believed He Was A Gift From God.
Losing Him So Early In Life Is Forever Painful. Please Do Know I Have Been In Constant Prayer For Him And For All Of You.
Your Choice Of Picture Looks Very Fitting….He Obviously Loved Every Single One Of You & John & Sweet Emmett.
It’s Hard To Be So Far Away At A Time Like This, I Wrap My Arms Around You In Love And I Hope You Remember You Are Always In My Thoughts And Prayers.
Blessings Be Upon Precious Ethan, And All Of You. I Believe This ‘Earth Angel’ Now Has His Wings & Is With God, Jesus & All The Loved Ones Who’ve Gone Before Him. You Must Know He Is In Loving Care. I Pray Your Memories Of Him Being The Gift From God That You Paul And Margaret Gave To Each Other And The Rest Of The Family Forever, Will Comfort You As Time Goes On.

With Love & Prayers, Aunt Judith

So sorry to hear this news! My thoughts are with you as you navigate this loss. Ethan was my student in 7th and 8th grade and I have fond memories of our work together at Mt Abe. Just last year, he hailed me down from his car as he took one of his famous drives, stopping to talk and ask me about my life. As if no time had passed between us.
My heart goes out to all of you. I’m so sorry
