Not sure what to say?

I miss you so much Dad.

To my cousin, Christopher: I had not seen you since we were young, my deepest sympathy to you wife and family, and may you be at peace with your Dad, my Mom , Aunt Liz and Uncle Joe.

Chris, I will miss talking politics and music with you. I wish you were still with us. I know you are at peace now. good-bye my big brother.

Chris, You are gone too soon. Rest in Peace and turn that stereo down! I had a bunch of new music to introduce to you but I'll just have to send it your way cosmically.

You were a great brother. I will miss you.

I was so sorry to hear of your loss. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help at this time.
