There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you and how much our entire family miss you. It feels like it was yesterday that you would come every night to mom's home to drink coffee or have a bit to eat...we miss your laughter and so many things. You left a huge hole in our lives that can't never be fix. This is not a good bye but until we meet again. Love you brother
