Welcome home brother. We have all missed you more than you could ever know.
Two years ago you left our family in the middle of the night. It was living a nightmare filled with unknowns and uncertainties. For a long time I felt guilty that I wasn’t strong enough back then to properly guide you through life. I always felt like if I was a better role model then things wouldn’t have turned out the way they did.
It took a really long time for me to come to terms with everything. I had partially convinced myself that you were off on this wonderful journey discovering the world and yourself. The other part of me was extremely worried and spent many sleepless nights wondering where you were.
Your disappearance considerably changed the course of my life. I work at Cactus Club because I missed you. I’ve met people that I love and cherish at this place. These work clogs were yours (mine now :)). I do USANA because it gives me a chance to mentor, inspire and help others out. The last 5 months have been the best of my life. Some people bloom later than others and I feel that way right now.
There was always something missing, a huge hole in my heart that could not be filled by any amount of success. It was you. You’re back now and life feels so complete. I just want to say I love you and don’t ever leave like that again. You mean way too much to me, our family and your friends. I understand it was something that you needed to do for yourself, but we need you now.
Thank you to everyone who has been there for our family over these past two years. You have all been very helpful through a difficult and weird time for us. I can’t even begin to thank the world enough for bringing him home safe and healthy to us.
This dark chapter has ended and I’m ready for the brighter days ahead. I look forward to a life of service, travels, family, friends and love.
