Out of four brothers, you and I shared the most because we were closer in age. You played with me growing up; loved and spoiled me and could always make me laugh. One thing you taught me that I will never forget and that was "you have to be smarter than what you are working with!" I love you and will miss you but I'm glad that you aren't hurting anymore. You went through so much and was so strong in spite of it. You said you were going to "beat this thing" and you have. God has given you the "ultimate" healing and through this has allowed you to finally beat it. Thank You, LORD, for giving us the strength to go through life when trials befall us. God is good all the time; all the time God is good!
