I remember to this day. I was 5 or 6 and Chan pushed me in the middle of a couple snakes he had killed. My dad had to rescue me. Chan got a real kick out of that scare. I think Hoyle kicked his butt for that. Thought a lot of you. Especially, having to out up with your sisters. May you rest in peace cousin.
