I know its hard to lose a loved one especially this time of year. I never met your brother Kirsten but he sounds like he was a cool, warm and caring guy. If he was anything like you Kirsten I know he had to be just as awesome as you. I hate I am not in the town you are in to be there for you physically but if you or your family want to talk please let me know. 615 796 3209. I am sending much love your way and a thousand virtual hugs. if this obit had a GIF I would be sending you hugs via GIF clip art. You have an amazing heart and soul and you are so sweet Kirsten. You and your family are in my prayers and I have prayed constantly for the C word to go away (Cancer and Covid) Lord lets kick this "C" word to the curb. My mom is in remission lung cancer, she has COPD and asthma as well. Its hard seeing anyone go through an illness. I am so very, very sorry for your loss.
