    My life as a child was Dave and Lee being my whole day.i am so torn by this and it has had a impact on my life and always will.even as a child if I wasn’t arguing with Dave ,then life was not complete. I think both of us tried to see who was the most hardheaded and I think I won,I have lost a brother and I will always cherish our years growing up.I will always love you Dave as I will Lee, my heart goes out to the family as we all feel the heartache.
