Miss you Bry! My Hero My brother! Noone else may not know but I know all the years since we were kids, all the fun we had over the years. I will never forget our last conversation a few days before you left us, our last talk you asked me to look after mom and dad. That they needed us and u were there when noone else was. I felt safe and secured, couldn't wait for that ride with you that you were so excited to achieve. Even though some we had to impress, we slowly grew up and had our own lives and family. But I will never give up on what I promised to help do. I will always be your sister and you will always be my brother. You were never embarrassed of me. Love and miss you deeply. Always and forever. Christine squires, your little sister by adoption since birth.
