The anniversary of my brother's death falls on Easter this year. I am going to try very hard to put it out of my mind and concentrate on the joy of Kaylee's first Easter. I only wish he could be here to share her with us.

The top left image is my brother's 12th grade high school year book picture. The second image is a murial he painted on his wall. My mother recently painted over it. He was an amazing artist. The bottom left is an image of him upon A school training graduation in the Navy. The bottom middle image is one from the last time I saw him before he was transferred to San Diego California. He would die there on the USS Hewitt. The bottom right image is his grave in Pensacola, Fl. The back ground is the beach that he loved so much.

    The bird in flight is stunning. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Tommy now soars on the wings of eagles.
