Little brother Robert, I miss you so much. Our relationship began with the beginning of me and your brother becoming one. I was so happy to inherit a baby brother as well. You and I shared a unique relationship as well. What my baby brother asked me to do I did what he asked me not to tell I didn’t. We shared a trust of sister and brother. I will always love you for being true to self and honest with me. Wish we had more time. You will always be with me in mind body and spirit
