    Growing up without knowing my big brother Dion was something but then meeting him as a teen I gained another big brother in you. I always did enjoy our conversations whenever I was home for the summer and even once I got back to Jacksonville. I truly wish that as the years have passed I would've followed my first thought to looked you up on facebook to keep in touch. You will forever be loved & deeply missed. Love & miss you Des.
