My Brother -My Hero
Paul- I miss you so much. I think my life would have turned out so much better & I would be a happier person if you were still here with me & the rest of our family. I hope you know your death made a huge void in the lives of many, especially mine. I know I was young when you went away, but I always felt so close to you, my big, protective brother. There are times when I see soldiers coming home in coffins on TV or hear taps that sends over the edge in uncontrollable sobbing. So you see, I am still trying to deal with your loss even after 40 years. I miss you & love you more than words could ever say. Hopefully, God willing, Ill be able to tell you myself someday.
