    I was so blessed to have Michael as my brother. Growing up we had so much fun. We loved to go blueberry picking. During his end of life journey he taught me that I could do things I never thought I could do. We just loved sitting outside enjoying the fresh air and listening to the birds. I never took one minute for granted when I was with him. I can still feel him and I know you are at peace my brother. I love you for ever and ever!
