Today was my nephews birthday. He passed away last year suddenly. We all feel the pain of him being gone and that feeling that may never go away. We all stand by each other and hope for the best for his family but that doesn't make it easier nor does it make the situation any different that they lost a son and a brother. This tragedy is something that will last for uncles, aunts, grandparents, cousins, and everyone down the line. It is hard to accept the death of someone so young as Liem.
Liem was playful and resourceful as a young child, he wanted to mimic his siblings but knew just when to hold back. For a young child he tested his boundaries and laid them out to meet his needs. He played fiercely with his cousins who never gave him an inch. He loved every minute that he could spend with his family, grandparents and loved ones, and I loved every minute I could spend with him.
Here's looking at you my man wherever you may be!
