Tahj's brothers and sister are too young to write
for themselves so I am going to write for them.
Tahj's youngest brother is five years old. He
loved Tahj so much. He would lay on the bed with him and watch cartoons
or movies. Tahj thought he was so funny he would crack up laughing at
his brother. He would act so goofy and dance do all kinds of stuff to
make him laugh.
When Tahj died he was only 4 and too young to
understand. He would go to the casket and try to wake him up. He said
"Why won't Tahj wake up? I am even tickling him and he won't wake
He is in preschool and already plays basketball
Tahj's sister is 8 years old and she also loved
her baby brother so much! She is the only sister he had. She would get
up in the bed and lay and read to him. Tahj's eyes would light up when
he saw his brothers or sister and he would get a big smile on his
precious face. A smile I will never forget or a smell we will never
His sister loved to hold him when he was a
newborn; well they all did.
She is a smart little girl and does real well in
school. She is a cheerleader, goes to gymnastics, girl scouts and now
she is in piano lessons.
His oldest brother liked to just lay there with
him and do nothing. He just wanted to be close to him. He is older than
the other kids and he understood more than they did. He wanted to spend
as much time as he could with him. He realized he wouldn't live too
He plays basketball and he also does well in
It was heartbreaking watching the kids look at
Tahj. I could see the sadness in their eyes. They loved him so much. It
was so hard to tell them that their baby brother was going to go home
soon to be with Jesus. He was an angel sent for a short time.
