i can’t put into words of how much you mean to me.
i would say that you are my heart,
you are the sweetest person i have ever met
and i have known you for 26-years.
we may not have always gotten along,
nor understood one another,
but lately i have been going through something
that i couldn’t do without you.
tonight you stood in the doorway
and with a stern voice
told me that i have worked too hard
to quit
that i can’t just lay down now
and stop
i need to keep trying
because if i don’t, the opportunity to show
what i am
who i am
will never happen.
you may be twice my weight and half a foot taller
but you will always be my little brother
i can’t do this without you, Evan.

thank you, buddy.
