I got the dreaded phone call that my brother was found dead in his front yard. I miss him terribly and think of him often. He was the only one of my siblings that was at my wedding and he adored the kids so much.

No matter where he was or what kind of shape he was in, he always called my dad on Sunday to say hi.

I know he is with me still and always will be. He was a good brother, uncle and friend and we will always remember him with love and smiles.
