Brother words cannot describe the pain in my heart of missing you. You were always there for me. I miss doing things with you and our phone calls and most of all you! You will always be my big brother and will forever be in my heart. I can’t imagine not talking to you just that alone is killing me! I love and miss you so much! Love you forever, Sis
