    You were always so proud to be a big brother...  more

    It’s taken me a little while to do this, so many things left unsaid, so many things left undone. I just had no idea where to begin.

    It’s been a long time since we were as close as we once were, but that doesn’t change the fact that you were always...  more

    You came to me in a dream on Sunday or I dreamed of you, I can't say which. Your face, eyes wide with excitement. Your body was replaced by what looked like the tail of a comet.
    "Girly-girl! I've finally done it! I am free!".

    Dearest Chris

    I remember so fondly when you were around, it was like the circus had arrived in town. You always walked in to a room with such charisma and drew people to you. Your humour was always cheeky, your laugh contagious, and your hugs so warm...  more
