My heart is heavy as I write this.I remember clearly my teenage brother sitting on the side of my bed, bouncing on my bed at nap time singing “Get along home Cindy, I’ll marry you someday “. That must have been the only song you knew to sing to me, because it was always that song. My precious brother I will miss you, and I’ll never forget you. I have so many happy memories with you. I will miss our talks, even the political ones. I love you my precious brother. Rest In Peace. Your baby sister, Carolyn (Bobbie).
