He was my parents 4th baby.
He came into this world at over 10 lbs.
He held his breath and turned his face red when he cried.
We used to laugh at him constantly.
He turned the tables on us and made everyone laugh with him.
There is something about the baby that can do that.
I was always amazed at the things he could say to Mother and Daddy that I would never get away with.
I told Jeff I miss him so much.
And he knew exactly what to say.
“Everyone misses Johnny.”
Oh that laugh.
Even when it was on me.
So today I celebrate the day you arrived.
You took this world and my heart by storm forever.
It is so hard to imagine that you would be 42 today.
I would say that you were forever 29 but it was more like forever 17.
Happy Birthday and Happy Valentine’s Day to one of my greatest blessings.
I miss you baby brother. Always.
