Im missing you dearly little brother. Youre my one and only brother. We had our differences, but when push came to shove I always had your back. I remember taking you to school with me when I was 12 and you were 7. I got you dressed and we got on the bus and the school was in Colonie. Mom woke up freaking out because you were nowhere to be found. It was picture day at school and I wanted to take a picture with my little brother. Mom had to come get you, but we managed to have pictures taken together at school that day. I remember Christmas mornings, The four of us would huddle around the Christmas tree sorting our gifts out and mom would still be sleeping. We would make tents out of the box fans with sheets over them and books holding down the edges and we would sleep inside a big air filled tent. I also remember how annoying little brothers can be at times. Swiping money off my dresser for the game room while I was in the shower. Or Opening up bathroom door while I was using the bathroom just to stand there and laugh and harassed me while I was stranded on the toilet. I am so sorry life ended this way for you, youve struggled a long time with addiction. I wish we had many more years together. I still break down and cry . I do not show my feelings often, I push them down, but when Im alone with my thoughts the hurt and pain flows out of me uncontrollably. You will always be my little brother. Even though you would never admit it, I know you looked up to me, I am just sorry I could not make a change in your life. Youre missed every day brother. I love you.

Growing up I couldnt ask for a better brother than you . We were thick a thieves I dated your friend you dated mine . Whenever one of us got into trouble by mom the other would be there to back each other up. I wish I could have been there to make that difference in your life . But as we both know we have to find things out for ourselves. I wish things would have turned out different little brother . Ill always hold those memories in my hear . And you will be forever missed!

Rest now Shawn. I hope your son and sister were there to greet you. You will be missed. I didn't see you often but it was always a pleasure when I did.
