No, Seriously...

This is my attempt at amateur photography, heavy on pictures of my nephew. Go check out Mistress Tootie Belle Rules the World, too. It's a little different.

Dear Kevin,

I hope you knew how many people loved you, and how much they loved you. What can I say, big cousin? We had so much fun growing up together and I never thought it would end. I remember when you introduced me to Weird Al Yankovic. We watched "Amish Paradise" and I thought it was the funniest thing in the world. I still do. And the frogs you gave us one year that croaked Christmas carols- I played mine until it couldn't croak anymore. You were so strong, Kevin, always fighting. You wanted to make the world a better place, and you did. You were the big brother I never had, always goofing on Alisa and I. Janna loved you, too, you were soulmates I think. You were so happy when you finally learned to drive, even though Virginia made you wait longer than Janna had to. And you had such beautiful hair, wild just like you, but even without it, Kevin, you were still you. I'm so proud of you for everything you accomplished in your 22 years. I'm glad that your mom doesn't have to worry about you anymore, but she misses you so much. As will we all until the day we meet again. I love you, Nettie

That is very moving. He must have been a wonderful guy.

Boy, that almost made me cry! I think that it is good that you get your fillings out like this. Just think happy thoughts and you will get through it all. I recently had one of my favorite cousins die in an car accident, he was also only 22. And the bad thing about it was we could not find him for almost a week, he was found in a creek bed by canoer's.
