My nephews Josh and Ben who I miss so much

Today it has been 2 years since my nephew Josh passed away, He is the one in the hat and it's been a little over a year(Jan 25th) that my other nephew Ben passed away. They are brothers and the most awesome brothers you will ever see. They both had cancer. They both had Down Syndrome. I love these guys so much and I really miss them alot. They always made you laugh so hard. They were full of so much love for everyone and anything. I think about them so much, and I'm so glad I have so many great memories of them. They were a huge example of how we all should be, so giving, so loving, so Christlike, so kind, so happy, so involved, and so much more. My kids miss them alot and always talk about the times that Josh would chase them around the house, usually in his underwear and scare them with his big "BOO". Whenever you would ask "Are you happy?" to Ben he would do a cute expression and laugh and nod his head. I just love them so much and miss them and I feel honored that they are my nephews.
