Together for the first time

Three brothers and me

Awesome hug from Gene

An embrace that rocked my world

My brother, my friend

Beautiful brown eyes

Heart of gold and cheery smile

Today I met Gene

Blessings one and all

Praise God for my brothers three

Wives and families

Judy and Marie

They were three then Jeannie died

My sisters in law

Great sorrow and joy

Memorial for Jeannie

I'm with my brothers

We celebrate life

Memorial tomorrow

Laughter midst the tears

Author's note: today has been a dream come true to finally be with my brothers. I've longed for all my life to finally meet them. Two and a half years ago, I met two of them and today we met together for the first time ever, the four of us in the same room together. If you have siblings don't let another day go by without telling them you love them.Appreciate them for the individuals they are.
