Losing my parents was tough! Losing my brother has left a huge void! It hurts! He was amazing and had an amazing life! You just have to look at his children and you can tell what a great man he was!
He was married to the love of his life for over 50 years! I have always prayed for that but have failed twice! I will see him soon! Our trips together were awesome and will always be in my memory! Love you all and may the peace of Christ be with you!
