Letter To My Brother

I haven't seen my older brother in 10 years. He hasn't so much as contacted anyone in the family. He and I had a tendency to butt heads as we were growing up. He did a few things when we got older and I was disappointed in him, but I never stopped loving my older brother.


I wanted to let you know that I miss you. I realize that we haven't always seen eye-to-eye. We were friends once and it would be great to see and talk with you again. I still love you and would do anything to have my older brother back in my life.

I know you don't know this, but dad died in January of 2002. He held on for 2 weeks and when he was coherent, he would ask if you had arrived, yet. We buried him close to Grandpa, but we had to fight for what dad wanted, but his 2 sisters wouldn't hear of it and since they held the insurance, they won. Going through his things afterwards with our sister and younger brother was heartbreaking. We never knew how much of a sentimental old fool he really was. It was heartbreaking going through the memories he kept of all of us. The things we thought lost with all of the moving, were all there, old pictures, home movies, report cards, letters, birthday cards, and more.

Within 6 months of his burial, Aunt Sarah died. She was so lonely without dad being her friend and helping her around the house that she just gave up.

There have been a lot of other things that have happened also. Things that I won't put in an open forum, but they are things that you should know. I wish you would contact me or your sister or younger brother.

Mom finally moved back to TX after dad died and she asks if I've heard from you everytime we speak. She has been open and honest to me about the things she put us through, you most of all, when we were younger. She has apologized openly and only wants you to hear your voice so she can say the same things to you.

I miss you brother and I hope to hear from you one day. Take care of yourself and I hope you know that we all love and miss you.

Your Brother,
