Brian, I love and miss you so very much. It is coming up on 21 years and still seems like yesterday. The pain never ends and I think about you every single day that passes. The could have been, should have been, and still the what if’s and why’s. I still talk about you and make sure your two nephews know who you were. I can’t help but to think of all the things that we have missed out on as a family and by now what your own family would have been like. God does not make mistakes and I still trust Him even though I don’t understand. One day I will hold you in my arms again and until then I send you my love on butterfly wings.
Love you Mom.

Thank you Mr. Gordon and I still think of you, your family, and remember your son also. I will never forget your kindness you have shown to our family.
