    My heart is so broken brother. How I wish I had the power to turn back time. So many hands reached your way, palms up, waiting for what you had to give; and lately, expecting what you didn’t have. All the while, there were not nearly enough hands reaching out to pull you up. I’m honored to have had the opportunity to be one of the people who reached out to you. I’m saddened that it wasn’t enough. I love you and I’m comforted in knowing that in the midst of your darkest hours, I also seen you smile more than ever before. I’m glad you had the chance to really love and be loved. I’m glad you had the chance to know your little girl more. I’m glad we had the chance to become so much closer. Even if the days past to fast, I’m glad you had them all. Hug Nancy and our parents for me.
