My dearest brother:
I’ll always cherish the found memories of my childhood growing up with you and your family. Going to visit you at the firehouse and sitting on the fire trucks. I know the large age difference made our relationship like an Uncle than a brother but I always loved and respected you as my older brother. I remember how you and dad loved going fishing together and all the family time we had.
Ed & I are your brother & sister and were a part of your life for years. I wish that our relationship would have continued after dads passing. Please know that I always loved you. You are our brother. Peace be with you ✝ #alwaysfamily
