As a child, you never denied me the attention I wanted. I braided your hair (when you had some), you fixed my bike, you picked me up from school, and you let me drive your truck. As a teenager you grilled my boyfriends, and taught me how to fight dirty and play fair. As an adult, we helped each other get through some of THE MOST truly difficult times in our lives. We had our adventures and our laughs. As a brother you would let me fall, but always helped me back up. Even in my darkest days, you would still be there anytime I called - you could find your phone, that is. As an uncle, my children adored you.
We were quite the team for the last 36 years. And for all this I will miss you more than anything I could ever say. I know that you and I didn't leave anything unspoken or unresolved. I know how much you loved me and my family, and there was never any doubt about how much you loved us. I know you are with Your Mom, Bill, Pops & Sugarboy...and it's all Good!
I will be looking for you late, Big Brother...xox...The Accomplice
