    I enjoyed that fun trip with the camper to see our sister Jacqui. We didn't grow up together, as you were practically an adult when I was born, but the times we did get together were memorable. Your way of imitating Donald Duck and the whistling you could do was amazing. You were low key, but there was a hidden wit that came out and showed that spark inside. Rest in Peace dear brother. Love, Tweety
