One sits here thinking of so many things that we did together over the years. One of the first things which come to mind and that have stayed as thou it was yesterday and yet it was 65 years ago. It is the piggy back ride you gave me off the Mountain. Funny how some thing so simple stays with a man all his life.
The tree houses we built and forts to do our make believe battles from. How nice it would be to have all those home made toys we had back than. Our children wouldn’t believe what we made do with to have so much fun.
Than the Farm chores that had to be done and the Milking of those darn able cows by hand. We worked in the fields with the horses, doing the hay and picking the corn by hand and stacking the oats. Some how, we got them chores done so we had time to play.
Hunting and fishing were the best of times and as we got older we had so many friends to do such with. One can sit back and recall different times a field and the Game and Fish we harvested together and the meals we had from such. Those were the truly good times.
I still see you with that first Turkey you got and the deer you harvested.
Brother you are going to be deeply missed on this side of the Tree Line, but as you travel down the new road of beginning take time to say Hi to Mon and Pop and Brother George. Say hello to Mother B. and Father B and Teeny. Also say hi to Willy and Uncle Bob.
Enjoy your travels down that long road and I’ll look for your signs along the way.
You are going to be very much missed by Little Brother, as you always referred to me.
