My little brother, I never thought that I would lose you like this. You were my best friend for so long, I know that we had drifted apart in recent years, but I never stopped loving you. I hate that I didn't get to talk with you so you would know. You always knew what to say to make everyone laugh. You left us too soon and your sissy wasn't ready. It seems like not so long ago you were bringing your wagon to pick me up when I got off the school bus. I already miss you so much, the world lost a very special person the day you left us. I love you always baby brother.
