"To my wonderful brother: It is so hard to believe it is 2 years ago today that I received the terrible news of your death and it was almost at this exact time. The first thing that came to my mind was, "What am I going to do without you, your advice and love?" I always knew I could turn to you for anything, you were my rock and my strength. I confided things to you and knew you would keep it to yourself. You always showed your love for your family and friends, and I learned to do the same from you as I grew up. In all your years, I never saw you angry at anyone, and you always respected people. I can still hear your laugh, and love listening to the CD you sent me of just your songs. I will see you again on the other side, and I know you, Jason, Mom and Dad will be there to greet me and show me the way. I love you forever!!!"
