I am writing this to you in hopes somehow and in some way you get this.
Exactly one year ago God saw fit to bring you into his presence and away from us. I can’t help but be mad and hurt but I know you would have stayed if it were your choice.
There isn’t a single day that goes by that I don’t think of you and what you have done for me, and for that I will be forever greatful.
They say time heals all wounds, but whoever said that did not have you as a brother. You pissed me off more times than I can count but you were always there for me.
We did have some great times though like the time you through me in the pool knowing I couldn’t swim and I yelled “Im gonna tell daddy” but I swam to the side of the pool like an Olympic swimmer!
Or the time at bojangles you and Frank left Joe and I in the car and ate chicken till you couldn’t stand up but you did bring us a biscuit so I forgive you for that 🙂
When I was down and out you opened your home so little brother had somewhere to feel safe.
When I was hungry you gave me food.
When I was sad you gave me a shoulder to cry on.
I would give up all of my possesions to have just one more phone call just to hear your voice one more time.
Sometimes I can still hear you telling me it will be alright tomorrow is another day.
Please know that we love you so much and forever there will be a void in our hearts.
We had to grow up way too fast but we turned out ok in my opinion.
Things still suck down here but knowing you have my back makes each day a little easier.
I love you!
