My Late Brother Johns' Missing Gift
Every 4th of July for the past 19 yrs. has been a struggle for my family. This year however, we finally found a gift that my brother, John Michael Lemich, who passed away on the 5th of July, (READ ABOUT THE ACCIDENT HERE), left for us.
We knew about this gift, but have been unable to find it! We all have searched, at various times over the years, looking, hunting, getting frustrated & then giving up. Only to feel the tug at our hearts every few years & search again.
This year was again one of those years I began the search. I consider myself an amateur detective and after about three days and no luck once again, I reluctantly gave up. Then to my surprise, my sister April, who also was feeling the urge, started searching for the long lost gift too.
After 19 years, SHE FOUND THE PRESENT THAT MY BROTHER HAD LEFT FOR US!
The ironic thing is, the gift was found on the exact day of the 19th anniversary of my brothers accident.
To say that this lifted the mood of this difficult time of year for us is an understatement!
There are no words to describe our happiness
On this 19th Anniversary of my brothers death I would like to share his missing present with all of you too..............................................
THIS IS MY BROTHERS DAUGHTER-WHITLEY!
The search is finally over.
We feel that my brother somehow had a hand in helping us find his daughter!
We are so blessed to be able to have Whitley & Johnny in our lives.
MY BROTHERS SON JOHNNY (Luckily, he's been a part of our lives since he was born & also has been searching for his 1/2 sister).
My brother passed away before meeting either of his children, but is obviously watching down from above!
This 4th of July is a very special & joyous one for our family!
WE MISS & LOVE YOU, THANK YOU FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL GIFT TO US!
Happy 4th of July everyone!
