I can’t thank you enough for always being there for me and always believing in me. You were one of the best big brothers a girl could have ever asked for. May you now Rest In Peace along with Mom, Dad and Jonny. You are now my guardian angel from afar and I will keep your memories with me forever. I love you from the bottom of my heart. Until we meet again...
