In 2011 my brother died jumping off a cliff in Davis lake and we missed him very much, but he was not gone. Because whenever I got sad a dragonfly landed near me and I always knew it was him (I was 8 at the time). The day of his funeral, I put a spear in the ground to honor him. 5 years later, only 4 days from the anniversary of his passing, our family remembering him and still grieving, I saw a dragonfly on the spear that I put in the ground to honor him. My brother is my guardian angel.
