It has been 23 days since I talked to my best friend or seen him. I miss my brother so much, words cannot express the way I feel, I don't ever think this void in my heart will ever be filled, they say time heals all wounds but I think that's only a myth or maybe that's what people say when they don't know what to say.

Forever my Brother, Best friend

So thankful for the opportunity to have met such a caring person. He was there to reconstruct a deteriorating structure of mine and bring it to life over 10 years ago. It is still standing today! Every time I see it I am still reminded of him. He was such a skilled craftsman who will be terribly missed. May the Lord watch over and protect his wife, children, grandchildren, and his entire family. May all of your needs be met in abundance is my prayer for you. Rest well Cornelius!
