We asked him what he would have like to tell his older brother who had died in 2015. He responded:

The biggest thing I would love to share is the continuation of family. My brother passed away before my son was born, way before my son was born. So he never got to meet my son. For me, those are things that I always regret cause I know you would be such a loving uncle, a very loving uncle to my son.
