James Penoyar is my big brother and was the my best friend growing up. I taught him how to ride a bike when everyone else gave up on him I never did. I would get up day and go outside with him and by the end of the summer he was riding his bike. We used to have a go cart and he wasn't supposed to drive..I let him drive all the time if after he ran the thing up a tree, yeah somehow it never crashed into the tree he just some how managed to drive it up the tree. He may of had alot of physical problems buy I never saw it that way he was just my big brother and we may have grow apart over the years he lived in Connecticut I live in Upper Michigan and never had alot of money to visit and now I regret that but I will never regret having him as my big brother. I love you James Patrick Penoyar and I will never forget what a amazing brother and friend you always were and have been love you jimmy and my heart is broken knowing I will never be able to say that to you again
