My big baby brother I will miss you more than you can ever know. I know you were tired and want to stay but only if QOL would have been good for you. Your beautiful wife made right choices and right decisions. I will forever have a void that no one can ever fill. Gone way too soon but never from my heart. I love you. Your big baby sister. Rest High.
