This is only the second Christmas I have ever spent without you. The first being while you were in Iraq. But at least I still got to talk to you on the phone. Tonight I have been thinking about when we were young and we would wake up at like 1:00 a.m. to go see what Santa brought us. You always came to my room first so that we could go down stairs together. Christmas has always been your favorite holiday. I cant imagine what your Christmas is like this year. I love you and I miss you more and more everyday. Merry Christmas brother.
