    B, I’m trying to not be sad and “bawlin” as you’d call it, because I know You are with God and Jesus! How can I be sad about that?? I can’t be! I just want you to know that you really were my best friend and the absolute Best Big Brother a Sister could ever ask for! We have lost a lot in our lives which strengthened the bond that was already strong. To say I will miss you, would be an understatement. I can’t express the love I carry in my heart for you Bryan, and I will forever carry you in my heart! It’s going to take quite some time to get used to not having you in my our lives anymore. You were such a beautiful part of this family and our everyday lives. Bobby is struggling with not seeing you everyday and his heart is broken, but more so, he is so happy for you! Knowing what you are now and where you are now! I can see you running Bryan, running like the wind! I will hold that image in my heart and mind! Hug Moma and Nanny for me! I’ll see you again!
    Love always and forever,
