My game was the coolest brother, all my friends said so. He drove a cool car with nice rims and speakers that shook the windows. But that was my bubba. He was that big brother I remember at a young age our mom telling him to keep an eye on me. I closed one eye and pondered. But he did that, he gave me advice and always said he was proud of me. He encouraged me to continue to have that good head on my shoulders. He always made me look tougher than I was because he believed it. Telling his friends he better watch her, she’ll whip your ass! That always made me feel 7 ft tall. But behind the scenes my bubba was a broken person with an addiction. At the age of 21 he died of an overdose. Such a sweet soul with so much to give yet in life. You always be remembered Michael Scott Crose. I love you Bubba
