you speak for so many. you have changed my perspective for the better.
and by that you have made me a better person.

thank you for showing me the beauty in trains. your passion has opened up new doors and enlightened my world just a little more. you have taught me so much, especially how to spot a train from miles away.
i will forever appreciate them for the joy they have brought into your life. my life.

thank you for being the best little brother and big brother all at the same time.

thank you for loving me even when im grumpy, or ugly. you see through me, straight into my soul.

 thank you for always being in your true colors, for showing me what little boys are all about.
