I just picked the name out of it being the first I thought of before my wonderful daughter bought him for my birthday and the fact I was intensely sadden by the death of baby brother which our parents are deceased and we was very close. Yes I am my brother's keeper. My daughter and everyone knew how much I loved and raised him before I ever thought of children. Thank you for helping my healing process. Be blessed and love hard.
