Ed. Eddie My (very tall these days) little brother.

I still find it hard to believe he's gone, even though I saw his him

We were so close as kids, we did everything together and Mum would bellow our names like they were one word when it was time to come inside.

I missed him (and all my sibs) so much my first year. And he was thrilled to be sorted into Gryffindor when he came.

I was happy for him too, as he was so obviously well-suited, but I'm also sad now because there are so many day-to-day memories of him that I don't have.

Ed loved a laugh, a good prank, as long as no one got hurt. Fred & George, he thought you two were brilliant!

And people (sometimes even me) could mistake that for being irresponsible, but when he was made Prefect, he took it pretty seriously. He hated bullying and did everything he could to put a stop to it.

He still kept all his old Martin Miggs comics under his bed at home.

He loved Quidditch and some of my favourite memories are of the way we used to play when we were home for hols.

It was hard for him to keep good news to himself--it was sort of a game with him and Carrie for her to tease him into telling her what her Christmas present was every year.

He grew up a lot, these past couple of years, but I couldn't stop seeing him as that hotheaded kid.

And I can't help wondering if he might still be alive if I'd trusted him a little more.

It was Megan's birthday today.
