    How do I tell you goodbye when I cannot imagine you gone. You tried so hard to watch over all of us growing up even though I was the oldest, (which got annoying at times). I know that we didn’t see as much of you as we could have but, you had my heart from the day Momma brought you home. Just knowing that you were there if I needed you was comfort enough. I want you to know that I will be here for Denise and the kids if they need me. I salute you for your service to our country. I don’t know if I have ever told you that or not but. I hope you know that I am so proud of you. I am not going to tell you goodbye because I can’t. I will just say I will see you again and I love you with all my aching heart.

    You left us way to early. But God always has a plan and all we can do is follow it so I am guessing he felt he needed you more up there with him then down here with us . Just please help look over us along with momma and daddy . We love you and will miss you so very much in our own way. Thank you for all the memories I will carry in my heart for the rest of my life. Good by brother for now .
