While planning your funeral, I've been listening closely to hear you whispering in my ear that, "Yeah, that works." Most of the time I just picture that crooked smile and twinkle in your eye. I really miss you, big brother. I'm so happy that we spent so much time together in the latter part of our lives. Who would have thought that you and me would hang out when we got older? We may have had 15 years between us but we couldn't be more alike in matters of the heart. I'll miss cooking your favorite foods for dinner, watching movies with you on weekends or listening to you and Darek talking for hours on end and even taking care of things for you when the cancer got the best of you. I guess it was in return for all those "sunny-side down eggs" you made me for breakfast. I still eat them that way to this day but now I order them as over-easy. I don't know if I ever told you but you always made me feel special. It reminded me of Dad. Dad always had a smile on his face for me and always looked at me so proudly. It didn't die with him. You kept that alive for me. Thank you for being such an awesome big brother. I love you, "fist bump," XOXO.
