Den, I miss you so much. I've been struggling for many years with my health and I could really talk with you right now. You always gave me that unconditional love that we didn't really have growing up. I was 11 years old when you left our home but we always spoke and were just so close. You were my rock in so many ways. I know you always said I was the one who kept the family together and was so caring but you were the "Gentle Giant". I remember at your service your coworkers shared that title for you and I totally agree with them all. Your humor, loving touch, wisdom, sensitivity, there's just so much I miss. Love you and miss you terribly.

Happy Birthday Den,
I just spoke with Ma on the phone. She remembered that today was your birthday but she thought you would be 72 instead of 73. She's got moderate to severe dementia now but her health is very good at 94. I try to bring up older memories and she remembers those well. What she ate 20 minutes before she has no recollection of. I miss talking with you Den. There's so much I'd like to share. We had a special bond that was priceless. Miss and love you. Until we meet again.

Missing you always Den. Yesterday I had to put my beloved greyhound to sleep and I so wish you were here to talk to. She was an angel. We both loved dogs so much as they gave us so much unconditional love.
I remember this day so well even though it was 10 yrs. ago. It was one of the hardest days of my entire life. I love you my awesome brother. Until we meet again.
