For the First time since my brothers death in 2001, that i let this date slip by. I knew it was coming and i always took time off from work. This is the first time i simply kept a smile on my face and let the good of what he brought to my world fill the space between my ears while i worked and went about my daily routine, rather than dwelling in pointless feelings of loss and anger. Its sad to lose some one close to you, but what time we did have together was wonderful! not sad at all. Thank you to all of you here, you may not know it but you've all helped me through some difficult times.
