It going on 25 years you have left us. Not a day by that I don’t think of you. The pain of that day lives with me. You’d be so proud of your brother. He has followed in your footsteps The day he graduated from the academy he told us that he was finally able to finish what you started. A parent isn’t suppose to lose their kids. I love and miss you so much son.
