I wish you were here. I still feel like you are supposed to be. You were such an adorable little brother that grew into a respectable and truly awesome, honorable man. You are and will always be a part of me. I wish our kids would have grown up together and that you were in my children’s memories instead of just their imaginations. I wish we could have watched it together like we were suppose to. I never thought that you wouldn’t be there until you weren’t. It never even crossed my mind. Well a little, but not really. I miss Taylor and what could have been. Life takes some strange turns sometimes, and we have little choice but to accept them. Maybe one day, we’ll understand. Happy almost birthday. I love you with all of my heart. Shelly
