Matthew Cubbler is the author of A Brother's Love: A Memoir.
According to the description of A Brother's Love: A Memoir, “One’s
role models in life are often found in the unexpected. The person who is our confidant and hero, or role model, may well be
a teacher, parent, sibling, or friend who is appreciated too late. For me, my role model was my brother, Andy, who died too
soon, at the age of twenty-one. Andy’s story and my own as it unfolds will tell the tale of two brothers who were each
others’ best friend. We had a childhood filled with love, joy, laughter, and sadness. Unfortunately for me, I was so
busy being my “brother’s keeper” that I never realized the phenomenal human being my brother, Andy, had
become. It took Andy’s death for me to realize the “role model” I had lost. Death stole my chance ever to
say thank you while Andy was alive.”
