You were more than my brothers best friend, you were my brother. I miss when you would show up at T-ball practice with my brother when he was our coach, I can still hear you say " Hustle Hustle Hustle" . You and my brother working at Bo's Disco and me trying to figure out who was actually the number one DJ. So much we have lost out on. Marriage, nieces and nephew's. Mine, my sister and my brothers kids not knowing how awesome of an uncle they would have had. The pain is still there as it was the night you were shot.. you are always on my mind.. you will never be forgotten
