4 years ago today I lost this beautiful, kind boy holding my hand. As the oldest, he was always taking care of me and Bryan, protecting us and teaching us. He fought through things in his brief time on this earth that most of us will never experience in our lives but always remembered to tell me to stay away from things that wronged him. Always protecting me. I can’t believe I haven’t seen you in 4 years Shmev. Nothing can ever prepare you for a loss like this. Not a day goes by that I’m not talking to you and thinking of you. You are still so present and ‘here’ in my mind. Dad and I like to think that you’re just up at Shambhala, hiking around or sleeping in your little tent there. I miss you so much Kev. I really wish I could hug you. More than anything though, I wish I could hear your contagious laugh just one more time. You are the best human I’ll ever know. I hope you know the impact you’ve had on this world. Mom, Dad, Bryan and I are working so hard to keep you and your message of always helping others alive in this troubled world. You have helped so many people by not even being here Kev! That’s how amazing you are. Thank you for being my big brother, thank you for being my best friend, thank you for always being there for me and cheering me up when I was down. I miss you my Shmev. I miss you so much. All I want is my brother back. I’m broken without you but I won’t ever give up. I’ll push through today like I do on the toughest of days. I love you so so so much. I can’t wait to see you one day and hold your hand like this again Slim. Don’t be a stranger. Peace and so much Love my Shmevy ✌🏻❤️
And to anybody reading this, please go hug your mom, hug your dad, hug your siblings, hug anyone and everyone that means something to you. Oh, and take so many pictures of them. More than you think necessary. It’s so important.
