The best little brother a sister could ever ask for. We really were two peas in a pod. Wherever you went I went, and vice-versa. We colored each others hair, we had so amazing times together. You really were my best friend. I miss sitting and laughing about all the dumb things we did growing up. I miss your laugh, you face, your personality. I even miss you saying your kidneys hurt. Sometimes I blame myself, because heroin wasn’t your friend before I got married. I moved and it consumed you. I wrote you letters while you were in jail, just never sent them. I still read them today. If I ever let you down, I want to apologize. So many times I sit and listen to music and just cry, it reminds me of you so much. I tell my kids what an amazing brother you were, you were more than a brother, you were my best friend, my partner in crime, my ride or die. I want my kids to have the same relationship we shared. I make sure to keep your memory alive. I have made peace with the people I cussed after I found out you were gone, and just so you know, they are doing great. I am proud that they have gotten completely clean and live amazing lives now. I just wish you were here with us to help celebrate their sobriety. I love you James, and until I see you again, please tell momma, grandma, and my baby that I love them. Please tell my son amazing stories about his momma.
