|My brother John and long time partner Sharon.|
When I look at my two remarkable sons, one of which you have become all too familiar with this past week, the credit doesn't go to his father. A good portion of it goes to my brother who stepped in to give my boys a wonderful role model. So today, even though I had a fabulous dad, I am thinking of my brother John.
He was the one who took my boys digging for crystals, had us join him to go camping, fishing, and a million other things I could name. My brother John is perhaps the most generous and kind person I know besides my children. I miss him terribly. He lives in New England and I live on an island in NC. We talk a lot but it's not the same as being able to hug him.
So John, Happy Father/Brother/Substitute Dad Day. I Love You and thank you
for always being there.
