Hey Mike- Another year come and gone without you in our lives. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if you were still here. I'm pretty certain there would've been at least one major change (and you know what that is). I'm absolutely sure we would still be yanking each others' chains just to annoy each other, like typical siblings. Know that you are still loved and missed, it still sucks, and we love you a bushel and a peck.
