Not a day goes by that I don't think about you baby brother. I often think about what you would be like now. Then I remind myself, you would be the same loving and caring and often very funny guy I grew up with. The kids are grown and you are about to become a Great Uncle! I wished you could see them now. You died serving other people. That is a true example of a natural leader. You were very proud of what you were doing and I am very proud of the man you became.
