In Memoriam

Dear Book Family

We buried my baby brother yesterday. He was taken from us by a sudden illness this past weekend. 

I want to write a memorial, I want to tell you all about how wonderful and incredible this man was. But there isn't enough space on the internet to hold everything that should be and could be said. 24 years of life was all it took for him to change the world and touch so many lives. He supported me and encouraged me, and surely told me how it was when he disagreed or had reservations because he loved me unconditionally. He was a passionate and beautiful person with a fiery spirit.

He was an intense athlete and the strongest man I ever knew. CrossFit and Cross Country were his loves... but he was a gigantic geek too. For example, we shared a passion along with our older brother for Supernatural. I wanted to share all of that with you a little bit in this small memorial post, the post that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of who my little brother was and how much light he brought to the world.

He was a warrior in this life. 
He is a warrior in the next. 

 I love him. I will miss him. So incredibly much.


  1. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. :)
