Homage

In light of an event that occurred today, I just wanted to give a little homage to one of the greatest people I know.

He’s always smiling. He’s someone I can rely on. He’s one of the hardest working chaps I’ve ever known. He has a cheerful disposition, and a kind of infectious positivity. He has the biggest heart of anyone I know. People are drawn to him because he’s impossible not to love, even when you kind of want to hit him a little bit. He makes my life better and I couldn’t live without him. He’s the kind of person that hugs you like he means it. He would protect you and fight for you. He is one of my three most favourite people in the whole wide world and I love him.

I could have lost my brother today. And that thought scares me more than moths and spiders and anything else in the world. I don’t know how I could survive without that big dork and his perpetual grin. I’m typing this and tears are blurring my vision as it hits me again how close he came to not being here.

Be safe on the roads, folks. And understand that the ever-underrated good night’s sleep is more important than you might think. My brother was lucky this time. I can only hope that there won’t ever be a next time.

(I love you, broski. But if you ever die, I’ll kill you.)
