My dear Step Brother, how do I remember thee. I remember the times when we were teens, how at that time your love and affection you showed to everyone was awesome. As we grew out of our teens into the young adults that our parents were proud of, we had respect for all around us. We became separated by miles however I never forgot the good times we had and my heart was broke when I was called with the sad news of your passing. I will always love you and think of you as each day goes by. You are my brother and will always be that in my heart. Mom loved you so much and would have been so proud of your you. You are forever a part of my mind and family . Love you dear brother.
