We went through a lot of interesting times from boss to friend to family. From Bob calling me taco, to him being a groomsman at my wedding. No one can match his friendship or his loyalty.

You are my little brother, and yet you had a huge impact on my life. Years and distance sometimes kept us apart, but you were always with me...I could hear your voice in my thoughts and in my heart. Though you are gone from this life, the things you left me will remain until I see you again. I love you my brother, and I will never forget your smile, your voice, your hugs...GBNF

Bob, though we weren't born of the same blood, you are my brother. You served as a voice of calm and reason in my life and showed me unconditional love as a brother. You were the color commentary to life for all those who knew you. Whether providing historical reference while walking through a city, or insight to a song on the radio or humor at the times when we all needed it most, your presence was unmistakeable and your foot prints are large and impossible to fill. You pushed me to be a better man in all ways and your words were challenging and encouraging. My life is blessed because of yours and I'll count my blessings, even through tears, though I'll miss you forever.

Your brother Drew.

Every night when I close my eyes I pray I’m going to wake up and this will be a nightmare. You’re the most amazing husband and father. I will cherish our life and the love we have for each other. We have 2 of the best trophies because of the way you raised them and the love and nurturing we gave them. Our world will never ever be the same, half of me is gone. I will do what you would want me to do and be strong and continue to be there for our babies and love them enough for the both of us.

Until we meet again my love.
