I loved sitting in the back yard with him & my sister singing while he played the guitar. I thought we sounded great! He had a band that would practice in our living room that I remember fondly. My sister & I would pick on him about his dancing just to make him mad. I think this was what sparked pillow fights. He got a saxophone for Christmas one year as his big gift and I got a new bike. Our mom was a photographer for a local newspaper so we have a lot of photos of these occasions! He started college the same year I started first grade. This came in handy when he taught me a trick to remembering my nines table!!! One time he poured salt on our table just to show me how a cube of salt stays a cube of salt no matter how you slice it then proceeded to attempt to explain it to me mathematically. I had absolutely no idea what he was talking about but I sure enjoyed watching his face while he talked about it!! He sure loved his field of study! He made me feel proud of mine as well unknowingly. I work in the medical field and he had no idea how I handled “seeing blood without passing out”! This is because when Sean was being born this is what HE almost did!!! I loved my brother so much. Maybe now he will be able to know exactly how much. This is not goodbye my big brother but I’ll see you later.
