  1. this makes me so sad. rest in peace big brother, i miss you already. i know i was your typical annoying little sister, i’m sorry, but i still loved you to death, then and now. you were so kind, and you had a bright personality, it’s was always awesome hanging out with you. it was also INSANE how much you looked like dad oh my gosh. i’m gonna miss jokingly telling you to shave your beard off, and you getting mad because you loved your beard way too much. it was also rad going to san diego zoo with you, and going on that thing that i can’t seem to remember the name of. we all miss you dearly. I miss you, angel. have fun with your family in heaven ❤️
