Dear Brian, it has been awhile since I have been on. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you. My heart still hurts just as bad as day one 18 years ago yesterday. Life will never be the same ever again and part of me is still standing in time the day you left us. You are an Uncle and Kendall named him after you James Thomas. She decided on Thomas instead of Brian. The blessing is he favors YOU so much when you were his age. It is like of piece of you is still here looking at him on some days. Now My Ken has joined you. He would always say at your grave (see you soon son love you.) I just had no idea how soon would be. Life does not always seem fair at times but I know God is in control and never makes a mistake. He is an all knowing God to things I’m not able to see. I still trust in Him no matter what. The hurt never goes away you just learn how the accept the pain that can’t be removed from the heart. Life had just begun for you and taken so fast from you. I will never understand the why’s of it all and I have to accept what I have been told. Nothing will bring you back or can change things. I know God had a reason he needed you back and one day I will hold you in my arms again and see your smiling face. The cherished priceless memories of you has become my priceless treasure I carry in my heart that no one can ever take away from me. I love and miss you so much son! I send you my love on angels wings. Give Ken a hug for me!
