So sorry to hear about your brother, your mom mentioned him often. Small world as Tom was school mates with all of you.

David was probably in the 8th grade when my mom and I became neighbors of the McWilliams family. I loved being able to join the family in our connecting backyards. The one thing I remember from our youth was him being drafted so young and going to Vietnam to fight. After he was injured he chose to go back to fight because he had more experience than the new soldiers. I was so happy when he came back into my life after many years away from his family. I enjoyed our 4th of July talks on Sherry and Jim's patio. He could talk about most anything, and make it interesting.
