(Evanescence: My Immortal with Lyrics Youtube Video)

(I find myself reflecting back to childhood on this day of rememberence of my brother, Tom. We were closest in age, he and I, only 2 years apart, and in so many ways and for so many years we were more than a brother and a sister. We were also best friends, confidants, and allies, and I know that I am alive today because of his love and friendship. In so many ways, he saved me, and we were devoted to each other. We endured so much together, he and I, and through that endurance, a strong as steel bond was formed that was never broken, not even by those who tried to break it through deception, lies, and manipulation. And the words to this song say for me what I can't seem to verbalize today. So when he needed someone when he was sad or scared, or lonely...It was me who wiped away his tears, fought away his fears, and held his hand through all of his years. My dearest brother, I only hope it was enough.)"

"What Would You Have Done If You Had Known,
This Was Your Last Walk Under The Sun?
Would You Have Raised Your Eyes To The One Above?
Or Lay Down In The Arms Of Someone You Love?
Would You Have Fought Like Hell For One More Day?
Or Smile That Smile, Then Calmly Walk Away?

Would You Have Rocked Out On Your Favorite Songs?
Oh, God, I Can't Believe You're Gone!
Would You Have Taken A Trip To Someplace New?
You'll Never Know How Much I Miss You!!
Would You Have Sat And Watched A New Sunrise,
As The Tears Slowly Fell From Your Eyes?

What Would You Have Done If Only You Had Known,
This Was Your Last Walk Under The Sun?
That There Would Be No More Tomorrows
And All That'd Be Left Were The Sorrows
Of The Empty Space In This Life
That Was Filled Up With Your Light.

I Am So Glad I Did Not Know
Because I Couldn't Have Let You Go,
I Still Don't Know What I'm Going To Do
I'd Have Given Anything To Have Been With You
On Your Last Walk Under The Sun."

"Oh Tom....this breaks my heart. I just found this memorial. Tonite. I'm so shocked and lost. I had been looking for you randomly for a decade. I figured you had gotten outta Florence for good like we always talked about. I stayed on that stupid mountain for all that time...you would be so mad! Crying as I type this....you were my best Friend & Confidant and really and truly listened like no one else. Hate to put "personal stuff here but I know no one in your family to ask where you lay...I'm so sorry Dear One. I should have listened to you. You should have yelled at me instead of lectured sweetly. I was so naive. You should have never let me out of your car. Funny-every time i saw a black 2-Door--i thought it was you coming back to say" I told you so"..Only you know. I need My Friend right now. You always "got me"...and now with a pretty serious diagnosis-things just seem so different. I'm back in Florence now. Came back in April of 2012 and sifted thru Facebook just wondering if you had created a "snarky" profile....why didn't I look harder. I'm so sorry my Dear One. I found my beautiful Farm and have a beautiful Daughter. I named her Adia (remember how we would jam some Sarah M?) At least I get to enjoy these last days with her and my 5 acre corner! You would have loved it....and yes I'm surrounded by critters. Tom--I must tell you in this sadness, it just dawned on me: I kept Toast all those years and the strangest part is I had to put her down : get this: on June 18th 2012. Are you two hanging out? You were the only guy whose lap she would stay in...probably because you kittysat her reluctantly while I was in class. Well...you and I always hoped that our critters meet us the other side....if you two are....just know-I will be there soon. Leukemia man...go figure. My One and Only Dude Friend--I love and miss you. I will continue to write here randomly until I can no longer. Hugs tightly to Major Tom☆"

"I wanted to give an encouraging word to you and your family.  I know at times it can be hard to find comfort, but the Bible is a big help.  At Acts 24:15 it promises that there will be a resurrection.  A chance to see our loved ones again.  I look forward to that day and I hope that this scripture helps you look to the future for hope."
