“I remember your hand in mine little brother
trying to protect you as you grew the laughs we shared along life’s path and even arguments too.
We watched you grow into a man your heart so full of pride as your lovely girls now held your hand and walked along your side.
My heart cries out this is too soon for you to leave us here but we know with mom and God’s great love that your spirit will be near”.
We will love you forever T.J.
