It's hard to believe Pete, that it's been a year! I can remember the day like it was just this morning. I know you've been laughing that goofy laugh at me.
I've been fighting so hard to protect you, I always did, didn't I? Except this time, you are protected, I was just avoiding the inevitable task of letting go. I love you and it's hard knowing you aren't here.
I know you are in a better place and happy, where no one can hurt you. I'm happy knowing you are safe and that one day I will see you again. Until then I will learn to live my life without being a big sister to you. Until then, little brother!
