    I love you brother mine. My heart is broken and I don’t know if it will ever mend. I can’t believe you’re gone. People tell me you’re in a better place and I know you are but I still can’t stop wanting you back. I know God wanted you up there so He could prepare you to lead one of His Armies. I am so proud of you. I have always been proud of you. I love you. I love you. I love you. How can you be gone?? I know I will see you again my brother love. Until then I will do my best to be strong just like you always tell me I am.
