Chris, you are thought about daily. Deputy Cosper is now with you. I ask that you look upon his family and bring some relief to them as I know the pain they are feeling. The pain is still there. I wish I could help take some of it away from them as I hate the thought of knowing what they are going through. I know you are still looking out for me and our family. I miss you little brother. I know you are proud of your niece, Kyra Lee and I want all to know she is proud of you and especially having your middle name.
