  1. I bid you a loving farewell my cousin, brother, friend, I love you. You and Joyce taught me I could say that and not feel pain , and I do not .the last two words I said to you were’ love you’ ,,,, Oh dude I’ am going to miss you so so much words really cant express how I feel .

  2. My Dear Brother, As life went on for us, as it does for many sibling we go different directions. I always remember our family being together. I always remember our kids when they were little being together. I don’t ever remember going for longer than 2 or 3 weeks without communication with you. In times of upset, joy, laughter, tears, and disagreements I always knew you where there and I love you. The last words I said to you at breakfast were “I love you see ya soon”.
