To Bob & Jerry:

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters.
We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts.
We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets,
family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.

I got this at the passing on Mike, it has helped a great deal.
So sorry for your loss.
Ed
