My big brother Charles, passed away on June 8 from diabetes. Today, is his birthday, he would be 56. I cannot believe that he is gone, it is so unreal. The pain is still so raw, and very intense at times. I dedicate this thankful thursday to my big brother, Charles Billy Jenkins. Happy Birthday Charles, I love you, and miss you more each day that passes. I know you and Momma will be celebrating big time in heaven today, dancing on all the clouds. Enjoy your day, you deserve it. Give Momma a big hug and kiss from me, and tell her to give you hugs and kisses from me. I am so thankful that God chose you to be my big brother, He blessed my life by making us family. I thank you for loving me, watching over me, putting up with me, and always being there for me. When I was a little girl, you worked at a grocery store. Every night I would wait for you to come home, as soon as you came through the door, I ran straight to you, and gave you hugs. I was always so glad to see you. You brought my favorite candy bar to me every single night, I will never forget that. You will never know how very much I loved you, and looked up to you. You were a true hero in my eyes. The day you passed away, the world lost a precious and rare diamond. There will never be another like you, my brother, my friend.
