I fell madly in love with him the moment I saw him leaning against his car waiting for my sister and I get off the school bus.......... He married my sister instead of me...... but I was only 10 and she was prettier. I still have the desk/dresser he made for me when I was 16. I was a strawberry blonde and he always called me "Red". He was an awesome big brother and I will miss him. On my next to last visit to see him he was laying in bed and I sat down with him.... He laughed and said, "I bet you never thought you'd ever be in bed with a 90 year old man."
