>my big brother
you tried to teach me how to be a grown up
when i much preferred being a pain in the ass
your spoiled baby sister
what patience you have shown in your life
taught me how to golf, play chess
never very good at the latter
an exceptional artist, drawing and painting with ease
capturing the beauty that surrounds us
you never liked to raise your voice, so logical, how calm you were
you spoke to me of the endless possibilities of the universe
loving and kind, steadfast in your approach
you always said “In this life nothing is free; you must work for what you want”
words i have carried with me
i will miss your voice
you telling me that you love me
my big brother Bill you will be truly missed

My oldest brother is finally losing his 10 year battle with cancer.
And I am just heartbroken. He is a wonderful man.
