Just having some thoughts of you tonight Brother, I think about you quite a bit. I have so much to talk to you about and I miss being able to do that. I miss hearing you and seeing you. I have memories of everything and pictures of you but its just not the same. Nothing will ever be the same. For the rest of my LIFE I have to accept that and its very hard to do. I love you BROTHER! always!

October 30th, 2 years ago, was a sad day for me. I lost my "BIG BROTHER". I think about the childhood we had. We had the greatest childhood together. The greatest memories with family and friends that I will never forget. I will never forget how you looked after me when we were kids. Always there and never let anyone bother me or hurt me. Just like a "BIG BROTHER" does. I LOVE YOU BROTHER

One year ago, God took you away from us to be with him. I still don't understand, and wonder why everyday.

There is a hole in our lives and hearts you used to fill, and we have no choice but to go on, and live each day without you. It doesn't get any easier. I miss you so much.

Sitting here thinking about you as 2010 comes to an end. I'm sad knowing that you won't be here with us in 2011 but find solace in the belief that you are with mama, you are both in a beautiful place with so much peace and happiness and both of you will be with us always in spirit. I miss and love you, cuz.

"God Saw You Getting Tired"

God saw you getting tired,
and a cure was not to be.
So he wrapped his arms around you,
...and whispered, "Come to Me".

With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you pass away
and although we love you dearly
We could not make you stay.

A Golden heart stopped beating
When he gave you rest.
God's garden must be beautiful;
He only takes the best.

Thankfully, we know we will all be reunited again - what a day that is going to be. We love you and miss you - Barry & Kelly

Blaine gave me so many reasons to be proud of him. Along with being a good and loving man, I loved his terrific sense of humor. I'm going to miss my daily phone calls with Blaine, with his cheerful attitude (even when he felt bad), and his way of trying to comfort others when he was the one in need of comforting.  I miss you my dear sweet son. I love you, Blaine.  Mom

Another year has passed my Big Brother. It’s been 10 years now and it still hurts as if it just happened. I know you’re in a better place and I can’t be sad for that, because you’re no longer suffering. I’m just sad because you’re not here. Madison is now 11 and she always asks about you. She has such a big heart when it comes to hearing story’s about her uncle. She smiles and cry’s like you’ve always been here with us. I love you Brother and I miss you. ❤️

Miss you Brother. I know you were watching over me when I went through my Surgery a year ago. What I had was nothing compared to what you went through. I'm sorry you had to go through all that, it hurts knowing how you felt but how strong you were with it. I still remember what you said, Everything is going to be fine. You were right! Though I hurt and think about you and the memories, i know you're fine and that's what you meant. Everything is fine because you're in a better place and you're not hurting anymore. I'll keep your memory alive Brother, through me, forever! Love you Brother. Rest :)

Missing you everyday Brother. Especially today! I keep your memory alive and share a lot of childhood moments with MAdison. She gets sad because she wanted to know her Uncle! She’s grown so much and she’s a daddy’s girl for sure!

I miss you Brother. I wish I could hear your voice on the phone for just a few minutes to tell you that I miss and love you.
Rest easy Brother. ❤️❤️

I speaking for Big Mama & Big Daddy, as well.  We talk about Blaine & smile just remembering his handsome face & his caring sweet & wonderful personality. It's hard to believe that it's been one yr. since we've all lost our Blaine.  We all wish we could turn back the clock & say or do alot more than what we did. 

We miss you so much Blaine but, you're not suffering now. We know where you are & you're at peace. 

Lots of Love & kisses from your Big Mama & Big Daddy, Cyree & Randy

I miss you so much brother.

Everything that we did when we were kids. The places we've been, the friends we had, the trips we've been on, just our childhood all together was great. I know we had some times when were kids, but we were kids and what kids dont. I dont ever remember fighting with you about nothing when we got older.

I loved it when we were kids though. Cedar Point trips. We got to take our friends. Family friends, John and Shane and just had a good time.

The Michigan trips from Kentucky. Always played games up at the college there, the 4 of us, John, shane, me and you! Its was always a great time.

The New years eve time and the Arnolds. The parents always went out and we stayed in and played football in the living room. I will never forget that!

Just so much in our life brother and I never thought something like this would happen the way it happend. Seeing you in the hospital while you were going through Kemo. Just seemed like everything was looking good and positive, because you kept it that way. But when reality struck in after seeing you when you got home, I knew it wasnt alright. But you still told me that it was. Just so much I should of told you and shared with you that day and night before you went back to hospital. Seem like you have a lot of time but in reality you dont. People dont think about that until something like this happens.

I will never forget you Brother. NEVER! I think about you all the time! You will always be my BIG BROTHER! I will see you again 1 day Brother. Until then I have to take care of things around here with my family and my kids! Sara is going through her stages of life like a typical soon to be teenager. Madison, she is Madison. Shes little miss independent, polite and when shes around daddy, a daddy's girl! I know you see her in your own way everyday, I just wish you could of been here in person.

Watch out for us Brother, Look over us! I know you are cause I know you are there.

I love you Brother!

Your little brother,

I remember arriving to your house waiting on you to get home from the doctor. I hadnt seen you for awhile but when I did, it definately wasnt you. We got you inside to sit you down and I didnt leave your side. We talked for a bit and you told me everything was going to fine. I wanted it to be fine, but I knew deep down it wasnt. You didnt complain about it at all to me. The whole family was there that night when you went back into the hospital. You were slowly fading and there was nothing I could do about it. I just had to sit there and watch you. I wish I had to talked to you more that night. I wish you got to see Madison more other than what you did. There was alot of things that I wished for but never acted on them. Everyone was by your side the next night. We were praying and I stayed there holding your hand as long as I could. You died that night, late, and Dad broke the news to me. I was upset and couldnt believe it. I didnt wanna believe it and I still dont. I thought praying would help, work, or do something. I feel like I was let down by that. I always told you I didnt want to be alone if something ever happend to Mom and Dad. It would be us and our kids growing up. Now its going to be me and my kids and your son. Its hard as hell not having you here Brother. I wanted to help you so bad with everything that you were going through and now I wish I was there alot more than what I was. I will never forget you as my BIG BROTHER. The times we shared, the place we have been as kids. So much in our childhood that I will remember about us that I will never forget.

Its unreal to me still Brother and it will be for a long time to come. I am going to miss you and feel the pain of missing you for even longer. I love you Brother and I cant say it enough.
