"To mom, my best friend," said Howard. "I want to thank you for making the man I am today. I know you are smiling down on me. I want to thank you so much for helping me make the hardest decision of my life. My childhood dreams are becoming true. I love you and miss you."

Howard then placed the #4 LSU jersey with Howard written on the back next to her gravesite. His dad Jamie wore #4 for the Tigers.

"The legacy continues," added Walker Howard.
