Remember you always being the big brother. Sitting at the table with you on Sunday, enjoying your mom's macaroni. You elected me to become the coffee maker.. the coffee made on top of the stove with the percolate and glass in the lid. I've been that coffee maker ever since. RIP my friend ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”. You will be greatly ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ missed.

Growing up together was fun - hunting, fishing, working on cars, and enjoying the family horses and our goat, Minerva. Will miss you but great memories will keep you in my heart always.
