    I lost a man who was absolutely the best brother I could've ever asked for. He passed away December 17th, 2019. We were very close and had everything in common. I think about him every day. He was a certified mechanic in everything. I've seen him rebuild engines from cars, to trucks, boat motors, motorcycles, gas, diesel, you name it. I would've loved the opportunity to do some more camping with him and his amazing wife. However, life has a way of getting in the way of the best laid plans. He raised a son who wasn't of his blood and was always quick to lend a helping hand. He taught me the art of smoking meat on the pit, a gift I will treasure for years to come. I'll never forget the laughter we shared, griping about politics, sitting by the fire drinking margaritas and telling stories. I thank God for the time I had with him every day. Thank you all for letting me post this here. God bless each and every one of you.

    Sorry for your loss. Losing a brother and best friend is tough. And especially now as so much loss is happening with the pandemic.

    Best wishes for you and the family.

    Happy Camping...[ALPU][PUT]

    Sorry for your loss, too. I lost my own brother just a couple months ago too. So much reminds me of him now-- the music we appreciated when younger, various advice and memories from childhood. It's hard.

    JB I am sorry for your loss, too.
    I don't have many recent pictures. He lived on West Coast of U.S., I lived East coast, for the past 10+ years. The one thing I begged my niece for, as I helped her clean out his condo (yes I flew to the West Coast to do that) recently-- was a copy of him that was from a Cruise possibly recently.
