"Dear Brother, you will be forever remembered.  You were not only my big brother and best man, but my best friend.  We shared things that only we as brothers could ever know.  You shared with me your inner thoughts and secrets like only brothers could. I know that you know all the things I said to you in the letter I left with you.  Your friendship and brotherly love are immeasurable.  You will forever be Johnny-Mike, "My Big Brother".  I know that you are watching over me and my family.  All the Deer Incidents have proven that time and again, even this morning Lucy and I both saw Deer independently.  We will always keep you're miry alive until we meet again.  I love you And miss you John."
