He taught me how to break things, how to fix things and how to love things.

We meditated and said a prayer at church this morning for Memorial Day. I stood and shared that today was the anniversary of my brother Roger's passing. I was surprised that my tears continue to flow after 18 years. This is the prayer we shared:
"PRAYER OF GRATITUDE AND AMENDS TO THOSE THAT HAVE SERVED THEIR COUNTRY IN THE ARMED FORCES.
Often our returning veterans have not been very well treated or appreciated. Our collective subconsciousness is vast, and each time we forgive and ask for forgiveness we clear more and more. Today, we remember those who serve or who we have lost as a result of service to our Country.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GIFT.
WE REMEMBER YOUR SACRIFICE.
WE SURROUND YOU WITH PRAYERS OF GRATITUDE AND LOVE.
IF I OR ANY OTHER PERSON HAS EVERY DONE ANYTHING TO HURT YOU,
     OR OFFEND YOU,
     OR DISRESPECT YOU,
     OR MAKE YOU FEEL GUILTY,
     OR IGNORE YOU,
     OR RIDICULE YOU,
     I APOLOGIZE.
IF I OR ANY OTHER PERSON HAS FAILED TO SEE YOUR GIFT,
     OR APPRECIATE YOUR SACRIFICE,
     OR UNDERSTAND YOUR SUFFERING,
     OR VALUE YOUR LIFE EXPERIENCE,
     I AM SO SORRY.
 PLEASE FORGIVE ME AND PLEASE FORGIVE US."

Dear Grandpa,
I am so sad that I never saw you in person but probably saw 100 pictures. I wish I saw you, at least one year.

Forever, you live in our hearts! You hadn't really left us. You are just in the shadow sharing our moments of fun 'cause.....you were once the "life of our parties".

Dear Dad -
I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part. God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart.

Roger! Could I ever forget you! You emailed me that night before your last breath of life....so sad...so alone to say good-bye. You're such a wonderful, lovable guy you never knew yourself. Nobody has forsaken you...everyone I know loves you and you are surely missed! You friendship, your helpfulness, your beautiful heart has won the affection of so many. Rest in Peace.
