Life goes on.

Today I wish my little brother a happy birthday. I can't say it in person though because he was killed when I was 10. He would have turned 36 today.

In just a few short days, the anniversary of his death will add another year as well. That totals 28 years since he left us.

My heart hurts. This used to be easier when Mom was alive but I can be comforted knowing he's celebrating with her.

I love you Craig & miss you dearly. My life has never been the same.

**HUGS**, Heather. Wish there was something I could do to make things better/easier for you. You're in my thoughts though.

Although my brother was not as young as yours. I lost my brother as well. He died of a heart attack at the age of 40. My heart goes out to you Heather!

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I can't imagine what you are feeling, but I hope you find comfort and love to help you through.
HUGS.

Hi Heather-

You most likely don't know who I am, but I was in Miss Vesa's kindergarten class with Craig. I had SUCH a crush on him! It was so long ago, but I remember that he was one of the nicest boys in our class. My memories from that long ago are quite fuzzy (they're mostly just feelings rather than vivid memories) but I do remember Craig's sweet smile.

Just wanted to let you know that he lives on in my memories.

Warmest cheers,
-Kathy Rubel (Kathleen Leszczynski)
