I knew today felt 'different,' but it took me a moment to figure out exactly why. When I looked at the date, however, it made complete sense.
Time passes, but in so many ways, nothing ever changes. My heart hurts for the memories we never were able to make, for the trouble the three of us Unti kids surely would have made together, but most of all, it hurts because of the hole left behind when we had to say goodbye far too soon.
I do my best to be the best me I can be in honor of you, to live the life you weren't able to. To my baby brother, Matthew David Unti, you're in my heart always!
