I shall carry your beloved memory of being my older brother by 2 minutes for eternity. And of course, you always filled that role perfectly, as has Kaj. Craig and Mark Cornelius shared a most touching conversation with me today, as did Christopher Mussack, my forever teammate on the basketball team. All examples of exceptional character, dignity and charisma. I will be there with you Friday, as will scores of your professional associates that knew you as a gentleman of exceptional composure and compassion for everyone. You were a masterpiece of kindness and consideration.

Your loving twin,

Jon Guido Opfell
