I will be taking the day off today to spend time with my family. We will be honoring a piece of us that is missing. march 26, 1970 – august 27, 2011 My big brother would have been 42 today. He is missed every single day. Among so many things, he was a talented and gifted writer. And for me, writing my blog each day has been a valuable way to grieve and to feel connected to my brother. brilliant . . . hilarious . . . charming I miss you, Tim. Thanks for watching over us. We plan to spend the day doing things you loved to do.
