A Great Little Brother
Our dear brother was killed such a long time ago. It is something his family of 10 living brothers and sisters have not gotten over. We miss him so much. Time doesn't heal, you just manage to get through another day. If there is anyone out there who served wtih him I would love to hear from you.
