My Brother

My brother was the nicest brother anyone could ever ask for.  He gave me all kinds of advice on how to be cool at the middle school and high school. He played basketball and he was the best at it compared to all the other kids I know.  He didn’t play for any organized teams, but had his mind set on his goal. Being my teacher, he taught me all kinds of tricks and moves.

He was 14 when he passed and that is not fair at all. He played only one video game but not as much as he played outside. His favorite game was NBA 2K14. His favorite player was LeBron James. His favorite color was blue.  His favorite number was 18, and his favorite basketball team was the Cleveland Cavaliers.

    I was best friends with James, when he passed, we all lost a great friend. James would always be there and could put a smile on your face. As weird a kid he was, he was a great kid. He will forever live on in our hearts and will always be remembered. I love you james.

    I grew up with James and even though we grew apart over the years I will always remember seeing him happiest just shooting hoops in the street with Donovan and all his friends.

    I am so sorry for the passing of James to all of those who feel immense pain. My heart breaks at the thought of losing such an amazing person, friend, brother, son, and human being. It sounds like James was a person who always brightened up the room wherever he went. I can not even decipher how horrible it would be to lose such an amazing person. Also, James’ brother, you are doing a great job in keeping James glorified. I am only 12 and have heard much about this fund. You are doing an amazing job, keep up the good work! I know James would have been very proud and happy with your work.
