Brother I miss you dearly I worry sick about you.I miss the fun times we’ve had together can remember all our little petty argument’s I miss the fights we have (at least you’ve got the Germans to fight now aye).I can remember us making fake guns out of scraps of cardboard and paper we can find and pretending to kill each other who knew that would actually happen you will real guns and actually killing people, who would of thought that! I can never stop thinking about you brother.You are always in my thoughts’ miss my goodnight tuck-in’s I know you’re not going to be at my bedside at night but my heart still drops when I see you’re not there. I keep thinking to myself why you, why did an innocent man have to give his life .It has been 10 years tomorrow since you’ve been gone. In a weeks’ time it’s going to be our 26th birthday I won’t be celebrating because it’s not the same without you.Mum tries to cheer me up but you know how mum cheers people up, shoves a piece of chocolate cake in their mouth suddenly they should be happy.
But as time went on I gave up hope of you ever coming home, and you never. I cannot express the pain I was going through it was a very hard and difficult time for me. Many people miss you dearly brother they miss you we all pray for you every night you will always be in my thoughts
But I’m sure that you were the hero that you longed to be
Lots of love
A very proud sister Leigh xx
