It's hard to believe that it has been 18 years since we lost you. I keep a picture of you and Tossy on my desk. Although it's hard to look at everyday, it reminds me of why I chose this profession. Your my hero brother and I'll never forget you. Although I wish you here, I know we'll be together again one day. Until then keep watching over me. Tell Ma Bush to have me a big glass of sweat tea ready and tell Pa to make some room for me on that wooden swing. I love you !
