Through the years, I learned to respect, admire and look up to my brother Jr. (That's what we all called him. ) He was always interested in my life , he always ask about my children. I know for sure how much he loved his.
When we talked over the phone, he never hung up before saying he loved me and making sure that I tell my husband that he also loved him.
He would crack me up with laughter, He always moved on, never gave up and kept His sense of humor.
Rest well my Brother, we will meet again in a better world.
