Shirley Porter (Marcus’ mom)Beckett was a wonderful young man. It was an honour to watch him grow up. He was adored by his friends. He had a kind and gentle spirit, as well as a sharp mind and wit. His sense of humour was awesome. (I will never forget the “Goats in Trees” calendar he gave Marcus one birthday). Our love for Beckett extends to your family. May you find strength in the love of those around you during this heart-breaking time.
Barb and Tom BrownWe were so shocked to hear from Bob of your tragic news. Such an unexpected and unreal loss of a young man with such promise. The words of consolation - and stories shared - show that Beckett was so well thought of and loved. I know you have a wonderful, close-knit, loving family with such depth of spirit, faith and strength. I hope that this - and the thoughts and prayers, including ours- wrap you in love and care as you navigate these unbelievable days.
Elizabeth BoothPaul I am so shocked and sad that this has happened to you and your family. You are all in our thoughts, and I hope you can all find strength together through shared memories of your short time with Beckett. Elizabeth
Dylan Robson and Lita MyszkoWe are so heartbroken for the loss of Beckett.   During our time together as a family it has been wonderful watching Beckett grow from a boy to a young man with so many gifts and natural talents and with such a bright future.  We will forever cherish the memories we shared together and keep his spirit fondly in our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you during this difficult time.
Jacqueline ParishMy greatest condolences for your loss. I was one of Beckett’s classmates, one of many who he had an impact on. Beckett was an extremely intelligent and thoughtful young man. He was gifted with technology and an extensive knowledge of computers, and I distinctly remember him answering every technology-based question I ever had. He had a brilliant sense of humour too, and always made the best jokes. My favourite being the chicken report, a paper with all the words replaced with “chicken”. Not only that, but he was always respectful and understanding, and listened to anything anyone had to say. Beckett had friends everywhere, and touched everyone in his own unique way. As a young man of high caliber, he will be remembered as such in everyone’s hearts.
Christine BettsAnn..Ridley..Paul..Simply no words to express to you how truly devasted I am to hear this news. Such a sweet boy who I will remember as having a heart of gold. *** Hugs to you all*** XOX
Stephanie and Brian ShannonAnn, Paul, Jon, Ridley and family we are very sorry for the tragic loss of Beckett. He was such a handsome and bright young man. Are hearts and thoughts are with your family. Love the Shannons.
Paul CastroI am very sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolence. He was a great friend and a very nice person towards those he knew. May God bless him and his family. I will never forget him for who he was and he will always have a special place in all of our hearts.
Adrianna DesantoMy most heartfelt condolences to the Smith family for the loss of Beckett. He was my best friend, and has been there for me when no one else was. And has been there for so many others when he was needed, always knowing what to say to bring a smile to our faces, always right on time. He's truly blessed me with incomparable memories, and my life is so much better now that he was in it. A secret talent of his was how he always made days brighter. As fellow best friends of Beckett, I haven't a doubt you understand exactly what I mean when I say this. I'm once again so very sudden for this sudden loss. I, and certainly many more of who Beckett's influence has reached to will keep him in our hearts, mind and soul. Much strength, love and prayers to you all.
Karen and Keith BrayePaul and Ann, we read this today and thought of you "Grief, I've learned, is really just love. It's all the love you want to give but cannot. All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go." We continue to think of you both and your family.
JulianMany thoughts have played in my mind these last days , our hearts are all filled with sadness but also with moments of happiness that comes with relflecting on his memories. When I think of Beckett, the same picture always comes to mind, a smiling, attentive and intelligent young man . I am blessed to be called his BIG SISTER . I watched him grown from a younge boy to towering over my head ! He always spoke with such enthusiasm, I will miss our conversations deeply. Beck was a wonderful uncle to my children , he is so patient and kind. Marcus’s knowledge of all things technology has vastly expanded thanks to Beck! Next time I am cursing at my computer I will pause and think “how would Beck explain what to do! “ Beck will be missed and forever in our hearts .
Andy MyersPaul, Ann and Family ....Words seem inadequate to express the sorrow felt by the loss of Beckett. My heart is with you.

KeithPaul, Ann, Ridley & Jon, Paul you said this to me 8 years ago, I changed a few words to make it relevant to the situation today but the words hold true. "I have been trying to offer words these past few days. I always feel they fall miles short of adequate. It was good you were able to have that time with Beckett. A hug and knowing nod are powerful. I hope you are able to gain strength from family gathering to fondly remember the many wonderful experiences packed into life. Take time to laugh over the good times and relive in amazement the struggles overcome. Beckett lived an amazing life,in an amazing time. He travelled and influenced many people. Everyone was far better for the experience… your Mom said often to you that your ancestors will spiral in chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of your body. On hard days, you will feel him still. Love you guys Keith
Irina DesantoBeckett touched my and Adrianna’s lives deeply. He was always there for my daughter when she needed him the most . He was her best friend. His unique sense of humor was matching her own, he was very gifted, but at the same time had a very soft and gentle soul. The hardest part of him leaving so unexpectantly and early is not having the opportunity to say goodbye. “Good bye, Beckett”… You’ll live in our hearts and memories forever . We’ll always remember 17 year old tall, handsome boy with the charismatic smile. Sincere condolences to his loving family… May God give you strength .

Cheryl & Ron WilliamsonMy deepest condolences to all the family.....although I did not actually know Beckett, what I have learned is that he was a bright young man with a great sense of humour who was loved by all who knew him. His loss will be deeply felt....Rest in Peace, Beckett.
Jean Phillips The hardest walk home any parent will ever take is the one after their child has "run" ahead of them. As Karen Merulla's mom I know this is true. I believe we both know the message she wishes to deliver. No matter how you feel- Get up, dress up, show up, and never give up! I'd like to add : when ever grief tries to steal the beauty of your memories - remember love never dies. And now we must live lives that will them proud.
Brad BennettThere are no words that will make this easier for you at this time. Please know our thoughts and sympathy are with you. Brad Bennett and Family
