It's nearly seven weeks since you left us my dear brother. I am blessed to bear witness to your great absence. Blessed to take the hugs from your friends, from your colleagues... From so many people who cherish you. I feel honored to have stood in the midst of the multitude who came to honor you. And I am humbled by your grace as a good man in a hard world. But then, you always were... A good man. A very good man. I am so grateful for our awesome U of I weekend last November. That time was truly heaven sent. You would be tremendously proud of your sweet wife and children. They are phenomenal. Thank you for always being so sweet to me. I love you forever. Your little sister, Sarah.
