My Story

My niece Morgan "Buster-Butt" Palmer passed away this afternoon; Jan. 20, 2009 at 12:38p. She was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem glioma in Jan. of 2008 and today is 4 days short of one year from the time of that diagnosis. Moops is my hero! She was, and is, the best one of all of us; so incredibly brave and all about making jokes! She laughed at fart jokes and she loved princess dresses. She wore out VeggieTales, Ratatouille and Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium dvds! She was incredibly intelligent and absolutely beautiful with her giant tear-drop eyes and sliver-lipped smiles. She could melt my heart with a single look. And with that same look make me realize that I was being ridiculous! She inspired me to be a better man and to live for the purpose of love and laughter. I have always said that she could hold her own with the grown-ups and I am devastated that she will not get the chance to be one. She loved playing with her "Sissy" Alexis, and she had an enormous capacity for love. She taught me about the importance of love. Before this year I would have never considered that love is watching someone die. It has been beautiful to share this with our family. Buster-Butt, I love you. I am so happy that I was given the opportunity to know and be loved by you. You are the most precious memories for me! Don't forget to look after me like we promised; because I need all the help I can get. You know that. Remember to sing and always ask questions! Forever Yours, Uncle Brett
