Sharon and family you're in my thoughts and prayers. Remember,
"when you lose some one you love, you gain an Angel you know".

My brother was my lifelong friend. We had our battles and differences, but I've never needed help that he didn't deliver, and I always went when called. He was 7 years older and therefore my mentor and protector. He thumped some bullies for me, he sold me his trade in cars, he sold my baseball cards (!) and I confiscated his record collection while he was in Vietnam. I gave his Buddy Holly back...

I'll sorely miss you, brother. I'll always love you. Rest in Peace.

Btw, he was born in Beaumont, TX and came to Fort Worth when he was 8, 1954.
