Yvette, Shaun & Christi: I am so sorry for your loss. I was blessed to have found my brother after not been part of my life for so many years. And when I did, it was like he was forever a part of my life. He was kind, funny and most of all he was a good family man. He loved you all so much. I know times are difficult right now but I hope you take comfort in knowing he no longer feels pain. I hope all the memories the four of you shared will give you the strenght to deal with the emptiness you are feeling right now. I love you guys. Ellie
