Today was hard, I'm sure Rose and the "girls" are feeling the painful loss of you. I think of you quite often, always relieve the stories with Geoff. We laugh and always wish you were with us. I love you Dear Brother. Although you're gone, I know that you walk with each of us everyday. Forever in my Heart  Lynn
