Scott, you are missed so dearly this time of year. Your smiles and giddyness were always a joy to be around at Christmas. You loved our nieces and nephews in the purest way humanly possible. Thank you for teaching me how to love unconditionally. Love isnt about how much the present is, but rather what it means to give from your heart. You would play the 50 cent games for a plush toy and gave it with love and as a proud uncle Scott!
I lost my brother in September 2012...yet it seems just like yesterday. I miss him most this time of year. He always wanted the family to be together so we could talk about growing up, the stories of sibling rivalry that made all of us laugh until we cried. Somehow everyone's version was just a little different. I always ask "were we raised by the same parent?".
I have his cologne and a pillow from when he had his triple bypass when he was just 44. I spray the pillow just so I can smell his scent. I cry and hold on for just a little while longer.
My heart aches just as much now as it did on September 21, 2012.
