We had our ups and downs, our good and bad, but in the end we all came together, will miss the phone calls and the where are you, though you were coming early, now you have it all, laughing, feeling no pain everyone around you with open arms. Will miss those days. Save me a seat

I can hear your voice & our greeting to each other, EVERY SINGLE time I would call you!
I'm going to miss our lunch/dinner date(s), pretending to trip you & "putting" salt on your food, to watch your reaction EVERY TIME.
I miss you & love you.
Until our next lunch date together & we meet again - Baby Brother (aka your favorite grandson).
