Michael and Melissa reflect and remember their brother, the man they know simply as Myka.

"He would jump on the keyboard and we would get up there and we would start singing and he would bust a note and we would be like what are you doing? That's what we will miss about him," Michael Williams said.

"His music, singing, and conversations we had-you know joking, I will miss everything with Myka," Melissa Johnson said.

Though their brother is gone, Michael and Melissa are cherishing all the good times they had with their brother. They are working on moving forward and putting this horrific tragedy behind them.
