This is my brother in law

This man here is my brother in law, For the selfish act of two low life brothers that did not let him see his daughter, he paid the price with death. That is not it either, we no longer have our son, brother , uncle. He had a lot of nephews that adored him and looked up to him and now he is gone. He also had a son of two , that he was very close too. always carried him everywhere he went. No body knows how close we all were. We were all close. We would live with each other, knowing we had our own place, and we would stay with him just to get out and pass time together. His sisters especially, always with him and his family. and we all the grown ups were bored we would go to the game room and play for hours. Roland was our spark of the group. now that he is not here, we are not as close as we were. His loss just tore us up inside, its been 15 months and it feels as it was just yesterday. His mother and his father miss him the most. Roland would go and see them every morning and just spend ten minuets with them. I just thought I would share that with all of you. we miss him alot, and 30 years is nothing compared to the time we have lost and gonna lose without him.
