    I will always be thankful for the love and laughter you shared with me growing up. Excepting Karis and my goofy and sometimes crazy behavior meant a lot. Rest in peace brother as you meet your parents and so many others we all miss terribly. We’ve got Kari so never worry. We’ll be listening and keeping our eyes open to your communication. Tons of love your way 🙏❤️✝️
