I know this is not my usual type of picture. But it sort of pertains to today. I just found out that a family friend was found dead today in his home. I have three brothers that are older than me and he was their friend...and he was actually older than them. So he was at least 12 years older than me if not more. One of the first actual memories I have is of him coming to our house and I was trying to impress him--I was maybe 3 or 4 yrs old. Anyway, I thought I would impress him by jumping across this tiny stream but instead wound up falling in. He was so good to me when I was little--would sometimes bring me candy or other treats from the store. Sometimes just made me feel special by talking to me...all of us loved him almost as if he were our actual brother. He also gave me my very first kitten!
