I really can’t believe it’s been 16 years. During my whole “mid-life crisis” this past few years, I’ve thought about Mike. I’ve gone through many, MANY fond memories of him and some not so wonderful (like the morning of March 6, 2003).

There are so many things I wish I could do-over, say differently or chat with him about, but alas, that must wait. Some people say it gets easier, but it doesn’t. Some days you even grow accustomed to them not being here, but the hole exists even on those days.
I miss you little brother!
