My memories are plentiful of my brother Buddy and many of them keep rushing thru my mind all the way back to our childhood. My Best memories are those where we confide in each other because we trusted each other. With Buddy being the 3rd sibling and me the 4th with just 1 yr and 7 months separating us I felt protected around Buddy, that is why we were very close to each other. Thank you, Heavenly Father for all The memories of all my family.
