A Letter to my “Brother”..

August 9, 2020

Almost 4 months apart..and you never let me forget! Monday night raw, sleeping on trampolines, and running in the bamboo as kids. Nothing was better than Mammaw Woods’s and the land before time!

You’ve always known what you wanted and you’ve never backed down from a challenge. Life is never fair for anyone and you excepted it with so much grace, so much strength, and so much faith.

You aren’t my cousin. You’re my brother.

I remember you calling me to tell me about Jill. She sounded perfect and I hadn’t even met her yet. Your voice was sure, your heart was already in it, and I knew you loved her so much already.

And then you sent me a picture of her engagement ring..I cried..

I couldn’t wait..it was such a hard secret to keep! She was beautiful and full of grace just as you were and I knew all of this before even meeting her.

He sure loves is Mammaw

Then you brought her to meet us…she fit right in. Something about you is so different around her in the best way possible.

She makes you calm, she makes you laugh louder, she makes your eyes light up. She completes you. No one in this world deserves happiness more than you Ty, it’s incredible that you’ve found that in her.

But there’s no one like Mimi

Enjoy this life, always love her like you did on your wedding day, and never EVER let her go.
