Louie my older brother I don't think there's a day goes by that I don't think about you. I wish I could turn back time and be able to have stoped what happen to you. I was supposed to been coming up and see my brother that summer but he was taken from us before I could get there. There is not enough space to right all that I want to say, I'm writing this with water running down my face wishing I could see you again. It seems that people have to die to become a hero, but you where a hero long before that. I want to thank all that has commented here. I know you are making our mother, father and many others laugh ( Donald Duck )To my brother Louie you will never be forgotten I love and miss you. I think I speak for our three sisters as well.
