He passed too quickly for me, but very quickly for him. My heart is broken, but at least he is out of pain and not suffering anymore. He was my baby brother, and also my rock all my life. He was a great brother, father, grandfather, cook, and all around great man. Everyone who knew him loved him. He will be greatly missed.
