Love the smell of sweet gardenia. I planted this the year I lost my brother. This bush is beautiful this year!
Today is my oldest brother’s birthday. We lost him several years ago to cancer. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you. I see a lot of you in the other siblings. I was thinking about our last beach trip together and laugh about you and I watching the sand crabs on the beach…came right up to our beach chairs. I will always remember our beach trips. I had thought about lighting up and smoking a cigar on your behalf, but I changed my mind…I didn’t want to get sick. I remember the first time you gave Raymond a cigar…he was sick for days! The cigar box you gave me is sitting on my mantle. There it will always stay. We miss you…Chelsea is all graduated from High School and going to college. Time flies! Everybody misses you…we love you lots ❤
