Three year old Drew Michael Taylor died on June 13, 2006. In the weeks and months following Drew’s tragic death, author Randy Taylor and co-author, his daughter, Lauren, had many conversations about Drew. Fond memories of Drew, the tragic accident leading to Drew’s death and Lauren’s thoughts about Drew’s new life in heaven were the inspiration for this book. The authors hope that I miss my brother may help other children who are grieving the loss of a sibling.
