I miss my baby brother......not only today but yesterday and every day for the rest of my life. Today is his birthday. He passed away too soon. I wish I had had more time to spend with him. To listen to his sense of humor and reminisce about the things we did while growing up was always such a delight. I remember picking him up from elementary school from high school. We would go to the drug store to get a cherry coke and candy bar and rush home to watch "Dark Shadows". He was a delight to everyone. I love him with my entire heart and soul and always will.
