What you ment to me....

I lost my only brother on September 15, 2005. To this day that is the worst thing I have ever had to experiance. My brother was my world! Of course we fought like all sibblings, but he was always there for me.

I remember when both my parents worked long hours and Aaron had to get my sister and I ready for school. I never was a morning person and instead of yelling at me or pushing me to get ready he would get me up a bit earlier and let me crawl in bwd with him and watch tv till I was more awake. Man I can still just imagine it to this day.

One time I took my earrings out and the hole had grown closed. He sat with me and used ice and my earring and reciting this silly poem for me to repeat until he got it back in for me without it hurting.

My brother was a true hero. Even in grade school when asked who my hero was I always replied Aaron. I maybe a bit biast as he was my brother but so many people would say the same. It was never a figure of speach to say that he would give the shirt off his back to anyone, because he litteraly did at times.

When I had my first baby he was there to cheer me on. He waited at the hospital the whole time. I am so thankful he was here to meet her. He died when she was 7 months old but he left his mark.

My baby girl will be turning 8 years old next month and it is hard to believe he has been gone that long. He never got to meet my two other son who is just like him.

I know one day God will bring us together again and that brings me so much joy.


  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my big brother on Feb 15th 2004 when he was killed by a drunk driver. Some days it is like it was yesterday, others like it was a lifetime ago. I have 4 children he never met since the last time I saw him my 3rd child was a week old. I have a son that reminds me so much of him.

    Rev 21:4 "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

  3. Brothers are special creatures. There were many days I would have cheerfully strangled mine -- but if anybody tried to hurt them, I'd be the first one to their defense. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I also wanted to share that I'm nominating you for a Liebster Award. All of the info is posted here -
