I don't know what I'll do living the rest of my life without you. You've always been my big brother, even though you're younger, and protector just always my friend. Even though you're gone, you'll always be with me, in my heart. I know you're probably having a great time up there catching up with Jim, mom and dad, but try and don't cause too much mischief til I get there. I hope God is hugging you tight for me. AAAD Lil brother
