They say it gets easier but it doesn't. I keep going back and searching for those sweet moments but I always come back to missing you. Your brother and sister are all that lights my heart. There is a gaping hole in the world without you.

I miss you so much. Today I remembered the day at the coast when you rescued your little brother. You raced like a man on fire to get to him only to find the water was barely over your knees. You were still a hero to us.
