So just last week or maybe a week before I did a video about the lost of my brother, and how his death forever impacted my life, and till this day, 12 years later I still grieve his death. The reality of it is that VOID of that missing person will NEVER be filled, and I don’t feel as if you should try to fill it but accept the truth and Continue to Grieve as you know how.

After 12yrs I can finally talk about losing my brother (Carnell JR) without breaking down and crying. I still have no idea why God took him at age 19. Losing the sibling I was closest to, took me all the way out, for a While. Day by day as time has gone by it has gotten a bit easier but I will ALWAYS miss my Big Bro and when I have time or feel the need to grieve his death. I Will! Memories help keep his presence alive. Talking about him is easier. He was Real did exist and has taken the next transition in life. I am thankful for the time he was here and the time my family got to have such a goofy, intelligent, protector in our lives! I love you Carnell JR!! #healed #grieving #healingafterdeath
