Aly's baby brother was born with down syndrome. He was an amazing person that always came up with unique ways of understanding the world around him. He hated storms, and whenever the clouds rolled in, he would ask his grandfather to make the thunder and lightning stop. He'd go outside and yell at the sky, "grandfather, you stop it right now, rain!" He has since passed away, but his influence and love still lives inside the people he cared for. He was an unforgettable person, and a bright light in the world.
