A great memory of a big brother: we all went to see the Boyzz (from Illinoizz) at the Spirit of 76. I was so excited to now be old enough to be with my sibs and laugh and have a blast. The place was packed. We were all dancing, the band was playing “Dance Little Sister”. Duaine would lean down and yell that in my ear. And I would dance and dance. Love you DL. Joanie
