Fourteen years seems like a long time but it was only yesterday that we were out shooting on Dad's land. I miss you brother and not a day goes by that I don't see you next to Dad. Mom is forever missing you and thinks of you endlessly. Court, Carrie, and Tyler are all that you wanted them to be. We love you. Always in our hearts.
