Missing you hasn’t gotten any easier! I can so remember the way you hated to see fall and winter the cold, rain and sometimes snow. Love you bro!
24 September 2018
Eighteen months........never would have thought you would be gone! Made your peach cobbler last night for Teresa, miss your cooking but mostly just miss you! One day.......keep watching over us!
14 February 2018
Eleven months.......unbearable! I really miss you bro, never knew it would be this difficult learning to no have you part of my life. I have the memories, I stil cry and my heart is still broken. A couple of your friends still call, we still laugh and share memories and I am finding pennies.
14 January 2018
Ten months today......tears still fall and heartbreak is still as tough. I'm missing you more today, wish you were here to talk to and to know it's ok. Love you bro but you knew that, and just because you are gone the love doesn't go away. I treasure the pictures and all the memories, you will always be the greatest brother, forever loved and cherished.
2 January 2018
Just isn't possible you are gone, waited to get your call just after midnight but it didn't come. I miss you each and every day, some people can't understand the pain, I smile when asked how I'm doing but inside I want to cry. Hung some pictures for Teresa in her room, she loves the last Christmas picture of the three of us, she smiles and tells you she misses you but knows you are with Mom and Dad. Doesn't seem possible to be a New Year without you, will cheris all the memories, the tears and laughter. Miss you bro, keep watching over us!
25 December 2017
First Christmas without you, I miss the fun we had putting up decorations, wrapping presents, and baking together. You may be gone but will never be forgotten. Love ya bro......
29 November 2017
Missing you tremendously today, struggling to put up decorations but will do it for Teresa, you were always here to help and loved seeing her face when it was all done. Last year you were here pushing to get it all done.......miss your calls, your laugh, the little arguments we had.....learned today a good friend of your passed, heartbroken for his sister going to see her later today. Hugs bro, holding the memories close that is what keeps me going.
16 October 2017
Seven months.......still struggling! Teresa talks about you all the time and laughs at things that you would tell her, Max isnt doing good and will be joining you soon I know you two together will be a happy reunion. Marcus calls regular, helps to stay connected with him. Miss you bud, I keep waiting for this to be not true but sadly I know it is. Hugs and keep dropping the pennies Teresa smiles remembering that you told her you would do that for her.
27 September 2017
Six months and 13 days......still miss our talks usually nothing important amusing most of the time with jokes and What if.....miss you bro some days it stings other days it is gut wrenching knowing you arent here. Cleaned the attic found the things you gave me to put away for Christmas for Teresa, tears that day as I knew it meant you wont be here to celebrate. A couple more of your friends have passed, attended their memorials and it reminded me once again of how precious time is and how much I cherish the memories with you.
20 July 2017
Four months......still stings keep waiting to get a call, have gone and done grocery shopping for you only to get to the car and have it hit me.....you have really passed. I struggle, I know and find peace you aren't hurting or struggling anymore still doesn't make it easier.
14 June 2017
Three months today since you passed, still heartbroken and struggling to deal with the heartbreak of your passing. Love you bro, I'm smiling through my tears and cherishing all the memories
14 May 2017
Today marks two months since you left, still a tough adjustment for me, I have your voicemails and pictures but still not the same. Today is Mothers Day, you always made this a special day for me, I got your letter and necklace that you had Merle promise not to give me u too today; happy tears, sad tears and laughter with what you wrote and I will forever cherish both the letter and necklace. You are missed beyond words, you are thought of each and every day, little things remind me of you. I am so proud to have been your sister, proud of the one and only brother I had and shared the journey with. Love you bro, miss you.

Rest easy and be in peace
3 May 2017
Eric, I know Mom, Dad, Kenny & Ginger were all there waiting for you when you passed. I'm still coming to grips with you being gone but know you are in good hands with Mom & Dad. My baby brother is soaring high with the eagles now.....rest well Eric. Until we meet again.
30 April 2017
It has been just 45 days since you passed, the tears still flow and the heartache just as raw as the morning you passed. You were and always will be the greatest brother, I cherish the time we had with you, you were taken way too soon and will be missed more than you will ever know. I struggle daily with you being gone, miss out phone calls and visits, and miss all the tings we did together....tv shows, taking Teresa shopping, receipe sharing but mostly miss just knowing you were a call or visit away. You are finally at peace free from all that burdened you here. Miss you like crazy my brother, love you always, could never say goodbye to you but always till I see you again.
22 March 2017
May your Spirit soar in freedom
From the fears that gripped so tight.
May you find the peace you searched for
As you wandered, lost in the night.
May your torched mind be clear and calm
And your tender heart be warm.
May you have no need for strength now
May there ne'er be another storm.
May the music of the angels
Be the sweet sounds that you hear.
As you're rocked in Heaven's cradle
May you ne'er shed another tear.
I'll wear your memory proudly,
My only brother.....my true friend.
May my love for you reach Heaven above,
Until we meet again.
You were the best and greatest brother I could ever ask for, my heart is broken and the pain at times unbearable; I have done my best to follow through with all your wishes and to make you proud. What I wouldn't give to get one more hug and just sit and talk like we did, "love you forever and a day" will always remember how you said it and the smirky smile you wore. RIP baby brother, we will be together again, with you waiting to welcome me home; but for now enjoy your Homecoming with Mom and Dad and all our other family and your friends. Teresa misses you just as much as I do, and Merle does as well.
