Big Brother. Jerry. I miss you, but I've missed you for years already, separated by distance. You in Texas, me in California. Our military lives flung us across the the world, you to Korea, me to Germany. We were so young then. Had our families, good lives. I wish we could have been next door neighbors, or at least next town or even next state. New Mexico was good! Godspeed, my Brother. Until we are together again eternally. I love you.
