I Love you so, my baby brother. May you find comfort in a much happier place. I will love and miss you so. Wish I could talk to you just one more time. But I guess I will when I get to Heaven myself. Now you can rest in peace. Sing Elvira to all the Angels like you did here at our home on Earth. You loved that song so much. God be with you. Tell all I said hello. Love you Jeff. With all my Heart♡
