Dear Brother,
A lot of fond memories remain in my mind. So many things left unsaid, that I wish I could tell you, and one day I will. I will always remember your quick wit, and great jokes early in the morning and all the wonderful truck driving stories of places that you had been and things that you had seen and done in your short life. Go rest high on that mountain because your work here on earth is through.Until we meet again LOVE YOU ALWAYS,
your sister Holly.
