This is a picture of my younger brother Michael. He loved his Harley! We loved him! Actually a lot of people loved him, over 600 people came to pay their respects last Tuesday. I would give anything to have him back, but it doesn't work that way. The hurt is deep and my heart aches. He loved riding his Harley, fishing, cooking, shopping and he was an all around good guy. He was called gentle, respectful, funny and always there when you needed a helping hand. Many tears have been shed and hearts are still aching. We have lost a good man.

I was afraid of something like this happening. I have been away from my blog and just now catching up. I am so sorry to hear about your brother. His is the second death I have learned of since resuming blogging. I have a brother and I know what it is to love and cherish a brother and how very precious and special they are. Irreplaceable, frankly. Your brother sounds like a wonderful person who brought joy and love to many lives, especially those close to him, like you. I am really really sorry for your terrible loss.
