On January 20th 2018, I lost my big brother to a drug overdose. He loved his neice and nephew, even when he couldn’t love himself. On the first birthday after he passed, I never got the usual “happy birthday sis” text from him, but instead our mother gave me a beautiful keychain in my brother’s handwriting, made by Kim, along with a note reguarding Cardinals, because Addy and Hunter can spot a cardinal just by their sound and always says “hello Rob” . This piece hangs from my rear view mirror, to remind us he is always with us. It is something I will cherish for forever and means so much to me.
