Today is the 22nd anniversary of my brother Darryl's death from Leukemia. Obviously I was very young, but I remember it. I remember that day, but mostly I remember days before that of spending time with my oldest brother. He was 20 years my senior, but he always took the chance to play with me and make me feel special. That's just who he was. He was one of the most extraordinary, brilliant, kind and loving people you could know. I often think of him. I often miss him, even still. But, I know without a doubt that he is in Heaven, waiting for all of us. He is being a missionary, something he loved more than anything. And I KNOW that I will see him again. We are an eternal family thanks to my parents temple marriage and we will all be together again. I can never say how grateful I am for that knowledge. So here's to you Darryl. Love you!
