  1. CandleImageStill thinking about you, Briar Patch. Even if you can never hear me say it, I really wish that we had been in touch during our adult years. I would have had some wild stories to tell you 🙂 I read all of the comments from your roommates from college and your neighbors and friends. You were loved a lot by so many people. I’m really glad that you had that around you before you left this life. I have to tell these friends and neighbors that I was the one to constantly ask you if you wanted to swing higher than me on the swing set at my parents’ house and that I got to spend time being a silly kid with you in Stone Mountain, Georgia. And, running around half-clothed as a little girl seemed completely fine in Florida with you 🙂 I guess that I always wanted you to be my brother. I never got one of those, unfortunately. Not a huge fan of missing you.
