Tony an I both had the same birth mother, and we were raised just down the road from each other and never new it.At one time he was my rigger an we still didn't know that we were brothers, it took another 10 years before we learned the secret. I wish his family all the best but I know he has gone onto a better place an we will all pray for the family
