The little brother of my best friend, who quickly became my little brother too. No matter what happened, or where life took us, or how much time passed, the 3 of us ALWAYS found our way back to each other. Very rarely do you create bonds when you're young that can withstand the test of time, but we did. I'll miss the random phone calls and text messages, always beginning with "hey sis" and always ending with "love you sis". But most of all, I'm going to miss your smile. The smile when you were happy to see me, the smile that radiated over the phone, and even the smile that showed up when you were up to no good. I hope you knew just how much your smile could light up an entire room. This one HURTS. I love you little brother.
