Little brother, I hope you have finally found a place that brings you Peace and Happiness.. I regret the fact that we never were able to get to see each other these past 35 years or so.. You and your family have always been in my heart, and will always be on my mind..Maybe we’ll be able to see each other in heaven, I can only hope the Good Lord will have a place for me in Heaven. We will see each other soon. Until then Rest in Peace, Little Brother..
