This time of the year is extremely hard for me. I think about you everyday of my life. Dad I love you so much and miss you dearly. I am still having a hard time remembering your/our face. Your genetics are so strong that we are identical and looking at myself everyday still does not bring solace because I do not remember you. The only thing I do remember is you holding me when I was very small. It was so comforting and I've felt that comfort only one other time in my life while I was sleeping. RIP! Your son Kevin....
