I miss my brother terribly and wish he was here to seee hi 3 beautiful daughters and his niece that was born almost 2 years after his passing!! There are no words to describe how much he is missed in this family. I know that he has made an impression on almost everyone he had gotten to know. He was definitely one of a kind and had some killer dance moves!! We love and miss you so much big brother, I will always miss you and remember the amazing times we had together.
