    I don’t really know where to start, how do you find the words to express just how deep your sorrow is. I will miss my brother’s sense of humor more than anything. Butterball could crack you up! We’ve shared so many wonderful times, for too many to recount. We’ve also shared our moments of sadness, fear, life’s disappointments…but we always got through it together.

    I love him dearly, and he will always live on in my heart. RIP dear brother.
