  • I am sorry for their loss. Really, I do believe a good innocent young man like this, he is lucky. He experience great love, he had a joyful life, he never lived long enough to become jaded, to confront the terrible evils of war or poverty or addictions. He sounds like a pure soul who has entered the peace of heaven. God bless him. He is still with you, he penetrated your spirit, and will always dwell there. Your brain has visceral memories you can tap, smells, voices, warmth, joy. It is there forever. God bless you for the rest of your lives.

  • I would see this documentary n my suggested list and after a while, I saw it again and decided to watch. It was very beautiful and there was a rollercoaster of emotions. R.I.P Jordan.

  • I’ll be perfectly honest. I typically don’t comment on videos, ever. And I’m not really a crier. I’m not really a religious person. I’m not out going, I do what I have to and rarely more. But this video makes me want to be a better person. It makes me want to go to church, it makes me want to be a better person. I’m balling my eyes out. And with this documentary, jordan has changed me, Jordan has changed millions of others too. Jordan, is a saint, and may he be happy, forever. And may the two of you be reunited one day. Thank you for sharing this story.

  • He is still with you. Just existing in a different dimension that you can't see... until you try. Open your Chakras and raise your vibrations to resonate and connect with the universe. I promise. I'm not lying.

  • Reminded me of my brother ❤️

  • I don't know either how I got here but....I'm speechless. Jordan was bless to have you as a brother. Bravo!

  • This was so beautiful. Thank you for sharing, my heart and prayers go out to you and your family.

  • Thank you for sharing your wonderful memories of your brother with all of us. I prayed as a child for my family to be the same as what you shared with us. It was not too be but I've been fortunate enough to have that same Bond with a few incredible friends! Truly a master piece your friends, family and you have created in honor of your brother who seemed like a person with a loving heart. I pray Jehova continues to watch over you and your family.

  • What do you feel about 33 degree Freemasons? BROTHER$$!! Ok.It Says In The Bible Don't KILL but in the sixties in the seventies going to military or go to prison and they will throw you was a fine okay it says Illuminati is of the devil they'll take a simple word that means enlightenment we are like me with others or enlightening with our own bullcrap and they will start controversy off this and make money off it what do you feel about this it affects our children and our family

  • Thankyou for sharing this amazing courageous story of a brave young mans life, incredible moving and touching, beautifully told by a loving brother, family & friends

  • They feed us cancer and Alka-Seltzer and more sorry for your loss this world lost

  • I read somewhere, when one person dies, it affects 10,000 people. I believe Jordan has touched 10 fold! May peace and love overwhelm your family my friend

  • What an amazing family and friends. Those videos growing up made me laugh and what a joyous time. So glad you have those memories not only to hold in your heart but go back and watch. This made me cry when you shared your loss. Honestly, I lost my big brother in 2003 from cancer and we too were with him. Then his son 4 years later from a heart condition (pretty sure he had a broken heart). But I really never cried. I think I was in shock. This did it. Not only for your loss but for my brother and nephew. I needed that. Beautiful video. Much love to you and the family.

  • Justin, may you find peace In the beauty of this documentary. It took my breath. You are as beautiful as your brother. God’s many blessings to you and your family.

  • This was a very heat felt tribute to your brother mate so sorry for you having to lose him sincerely. I remember the final hour of my mother passing away in hospice, it makes you think about your own mortality a lot more trust me. I recall the night it happened in my mind in so much that I can still smell the hospital food to all the little noises each machine used to make every time her blood pressure would begin do drop dangerously low. Listening to every breath not knowing which one would be the last. Its been 7 and half years now since she passed, but it still feels like yesterday when I think about it. My mother was a tough lady and could handle a lot of pain, but this was something even she couldn't hide from me nor would I ever fault her for it. I watched as my mother slowly transitioned from a living, warm and loving mother to a frail, bed ridden corpse, albeit one that moved ever so slightly from time to time right before my eyes. I too had my brush with death in 2007 and it was a very scary moment for me I must confess. Sadly It is only when your life becomes full of disease that you truly begin to reflect on the terrifying sounds of the guns moving closer and you know you have to march onward towards them regardless of the final outcome that awaits you. I was 43 years old and had a great life, then over the span of 8 months I slowly starved to death went from being 184kg to a mere 112 skeleton that looked like something from a concentration camp. It was the most terrifying and painful experience of my life but what made it far worse was the lingering fact ................I knew death was calling me towards it. I always would say to family and friends could be in a crowd of a billion people but still feel utterly alone when faced with death. Its a journey we all must one day take, but we must leave this world on our own and that is the harsh reality that bites deep. I was just one of many that somehow survived to tell the story of what happened to me, but I still fight with this disease everyday of my life and yes some days I don't feel so great, but I am lucky to be alive. The disease MS took away my throat muscles and I lost the ability to eat or drink anything by mouth.....I sometimes choke on my own saliva which is not fun. I have suffered silent aspiration in my lungs to many times to count since fluid would enter into my lungs not a fun ride. I am now 56 and 154kg being kept alive by a simple G Tube ...... but I am lot wiser about life and death and never take anything for granted like I used too. In closing: I used to have this little quote I wrote next to my bed stand that would read, "Hell is waking up and knowing you have to do it all over again" I don't read that quote anymore, but at the same time I am not fully resigned to the fact this disease will one day render me motionless or locked in a body like statue one day, but trust me after speaking with countless neurologists and seeing first hand how this disease mounts its final attack on its host........ I try to be cautiously optimistic but with a dose of reality in the back of my thoughts. I now think of another quote I wrote a few years back that sums up how I feel about death and it reads like this.... "Death is merely a sedative to this thing we call life" I'm getting tired more and more each day.....cheers. Haydn.E.Sheldon

  • This documentary will never be the same as the light and love Jordan spread, but it sure does him justice. Thank you for your time and energy. He's proud of his little brother dedicating a beautiful work of art celebrating his life and we all are as well. Good work.

  • Justin, this is truly beautiful.. thank you for sharing Jordan’s story, now he will always live on 💛

  • I can't watch videos from a certain era. Anyone understand? Or see pics. The kids' innocence? Too much pan?

  • Beautiful tribute

  • this is amazing, thank you for sharing his story

  • Wow I’ve just cried my eyes out. What a beautiful way to honour your brother. So sorry for your loss xx

  • Watching this I felt like I grew up with your family. This is so hard to watch. Jordan seemed like such an amazing guy. We love you Jordan🤍 praying for your family, you guys are so strong 🥺

  • wow, i wasnt expecting to cry as much as i did.

  • I lost my cousin almost a year ago to this day. I needed to see this. Spread love and light while we're still blessed to

  • Wow! You delivered that so beautifully, Justin! I really feel like I got to know you guys. Very well done to you, definitely made Jordan proud. Oh & you're right, Jordan. Cancer is a b*tch. God rest your beautiful soul.

  • This is truly one of the best things i've ever seen, May his soul rest in peace.

  • Beautifully done, what an amazing documentary to honor his life. It's so sad but also so inspiring, to make the most of life and to count your blessings every day. And cancer's a bitch indeed.

  • What an absolutely beautiful tribute to your brother Justin. You made me wish I had known Jordan and had a small portion of his light in my life. Sending love x

  • L

  • As someone who has had to watch loved ones whither away from cancer....I am so glad you made this for your brother's memory. I cried so hard watching this. It was beautiful.

  • we love you jordan.

  • At 40:00 when the father says he’s hoping God will suddenly heal his son, that’s the same thing my dad said about my brother, Jeff. Jeff and Jordan are with Jesus today!

  • Rip🙏🏻

  • God bless you and your family. My mother battled cancer as well and I just want to say thank you for sharing your story. Sending lots of love!

  • I love this so much. As a beginning filmmaker, I am so grateful to have seen this beautifully done documentary. Keep it going!

  • I am just a stranger watching this it brought tears to my eyes ....If we all had a brother like Jordan this world would be a better place ...As for Justin I am sure your big brother is looking down on you smiling while wearing a blue wig lol awesome video

  • Hi guys - I've just read James Stalin's THE AUDACITY OF GROPE: A CANDID LOOK AT JOE BIDEN. He references Biden with Jeffrey Epstein, Miss Maxwell & the Zorro Ranch. Never heard this before. Shocking stuff. Check this out.

  • One of the most touching, beautifully sad, tragically majestical stories I have seen yet.

  • Ugh.....that was rough. Well done on the documentary. Should be on Netflix.

  • It is so true cancer is a bitch.I have smiled and cried all the way through this as I can relate so much as I lost my cousin to cancer in July of 2020.Within two weeks of her funeral it was also her birthday..It is so hard to deal with the death of a loved one taken to early,but I’m making sure to talk about her a lot and remember the crazy things we did together.I wish the Robinson family and friends my deepest sympathy for their loss.

  • this family life is beautiful

  • Ouch that hurt

  • I am not sure how I got here but glad that I am here, maybe it was GOD because Justin is totally me, it seems that when you are honored to know a truly righteous loving and caring person in this instance you witness them live with focus as if some how they were aware of the fact they didn't have long so they remove all hate and pettiness and only practice determined love and humility. I Have dealt with cancer and the lose of a loved one, it makes you feel helpless but it helps when its a person like Jordan seemed to be a soldier who dealt with everything with a determined strength. Justin,..thank you for sharing this with us you have touched my heart, the feeling of lost will remain but GOD transforms it into a appreciation for the bounty of awesome memories, you all will grow from it. may GOD continue to bless you and your lovely family. Be blessed and rest in peace Jordan Robinson,

  • What a tremendously beautiful blessing it is to be able to know and experience amazing people.

  • What a blessing watching this has been... This is the most beautiful love letter and tribute, so beautifully made, so sincere and so raw. I don't remember the last time I cried with so much heartfelt. It's difficult to explain, but I cried so hard feeling the pain and at the same time feeling like I was healing parts of myself... So moving. Even though I never knew Jordan, this hit so deep I feel I'm mourning him. And I swear there was a moment at the end with the last pictures and footage where I felt his presence, and it was light, goodness and so so so much love it overcame my tears with a deep sense of unity and wholeness. Justin, thank you so much for sharing this with the world, you are not only honoring your brother, but you are gifting all of us with the kind of realness that cracks the heart open and allows for pure unconditional love to flow, something our world needs more of right now. I believe Jordan's soul purpose in this lifetime was to be everything he was and meant to you, your family and loved ones, being a source of laughter, light and love; And to touch the lives of those who knew him, and now the lives of strangers around the globe, impacting so many of us through love and through YOU, by sharing this. His essence and grace live through you, through your love for him and through this masterpiece you've created. I truly believe you are soulmates and your powerful bond has been, is and will be forever in time, space and across lifetimes. What a blessing, What a gift. - From Barcelona with love. Thank you.

  • Beautiful....

  • I’m so glad this documentary came across my queue. I lost my 7yo nephew 6 years ago. You are so completely right, you bleed out forever. It’s a pain you know you’ll carry when you loved someone that much. My nephew was pretty much my child and we grew up together from 14-21 I had him on my hip. RIP JORDAN RIP JAHLANI

  • Whoever disliked this get some help pls

  • Just came upon this docu, and watched a few minutes and decided I can't watch. I was extremely close to my brother- the pain changed, lessoned but as long as I love him is as long as it will hurt. Greg Robinson Photographer Nov 18, 1978. Thank you for your strength, I know how hard it is to go through footage and memories.

  • My Jordan RIP sure sounds like he was a great person. And had great family and a brother who loved him as much as life itself. 🥰🙏🥰❤️

  • My heart hurts for you and your family. We never forget loved ones we lost. They live within us every day. Sending prayers and hugs.

  • This was such a great documentary of your sweet brothers life. Y'all really had a special bond that can never be broken. I'm from Greenville SC area.
