What is to be said ... I will miss stopping by to check on you ... when what I am really doing is grounding, because for me there was nothing weak in you. I gained strength from your gruffness and abrupt answers. I often laughed at your facial expressions , and later in life -even when they were of disapproval. You could make me feel like a small child being chastised far into my adulthood <3 Some of my favorite pics are the ones of me with you in a photo booth. I was so little and I don't know why its just us 2. We have a few stories , we made a few long rides together that even my older sisters didn't get to make LOL ( nor would they want to ) I've drank with you , cried because you hurt my feelings and punched you square in the face ( you may have been proud of that one ) I've traveled to pick you up and defended you .... not that you were necessarily right but because you are my big brother and I love you. You are my Big Brother , a meanass, a loner and a jokester and I will miss you being the constant that I want to check in on ... not because you needed me to , but because I needed me to. Rest Well Brother and keep sending those signs - i see them and know its your energy!
