My brother Steve took me exploring all over when I was little. Basically wherever he went he took me. We ran the woods like first time explorers getting many many cases of poison oak, which Steve suffered tremendously. I’m sure my mother had something to do with me always tagging along at times but what times we had. Once we walked to the little airport in Petaluma and a man there gave us a ride in his Piper Cub. It was amazing.

He also tried out noose tying and put the noose on my neck and then when trying to get it off it kept getting tighter and tighter. We got a bit panicked but we got help to get it off. ( I always thought that might have been payback for me tagging along all the time) anyway so many stories and memories of how awesome he was I could write a book.

I love him and will miss him as all who knew him will. We are lucky to have known someone with such character.

Love, Cindy Taber
