12 Years

     12 years...how it that even possible? August 28, 2004 was easily the first worst day of my life. My older brother John was an amazing person; don't get me wrong - he was FAR from perfect but I think the heart that beat in his chest for 24 years heavily outweighed any misstep he may have taken on this Earth. He loved his family, friends, & girlfriend Leslie fiercely. He was the most loyal person you could ever meet. He had such an extremely contagious laugh that even if you didn't want to laugh with him - it didn't matter, you would always ending up doing so. God, how I miss that laugh. I'm not sure what Heaven is like but I do know wherever or whatever it may be, I have no doubt my brother is there telling the other angels that "it's all good". I ask that, in my brother's honor, please check your smoke detectors - it's such a simple task that could easily save your life.

John - I hope you liked the daisies we dropped off yesterday. I will always continue to search for life's answers in song lyrics, just like you told me. I miss you every minute of every day & I love you even more. Rest easy big brother. <3
