    I had a brother who was named John Vianney. I never knew him because he died when my mom was still pregnant with me. I wish I knew my brother and they say that his short life was a blessing for he was the greatest little boy and his actions reflected those of the saints. Reading about him made me realize that I may not know him now but in later life I will.
