Kandi Burruss lost her brother many years ago after a tragic car accident in Mexico, but The Real Housewives of Atlanta star still finds a way to honor his memory when it matters most.

On Oct. 4, Kandi tweeted, “Today is my brother Patrick's birthday. Sometimes I wonder what life would be like if he were still here...”

We know that losing her brother when he was just 15 had a profound affect on Kandi, but we’re pretty sure he’d be proud off all she’s accomplished!
