Today is the second anniversary of my brother’s passing. It’s a sad day for me. I miss him. We didn’t always get along well, but isn’t that the way it is with most siblings? He’s the only one I had and being older than me, the one I looked up to for lots of things.
So now I just tuck little notes to him occasionally into Mike’s Mail. It’s a ceramic mail holder that I had made for him many years ago. Mike loved to play golf so it had to be about golf, of course 🙂 Now it sits on my desk, next to my computer.
I just learned yesterday that one of his granddaughters, a senior in high school, took a few trophies recently for her school’s golf team. I’m sure that whatever dimension he’s in, Mike is smiling on her.
The bottom photo is a collage I did of him about a year ago. Mike loved to clown around and as you can see, was having a little fun sticking his head out through the sun roof of his car. Being that he was a joker, sometimes it was hard to know if he was pulling my leg or not. Playing Texas Hold ‘Em with him was a real challenge. He had the perfect poker face, although I did manage to beat him a couple of times 🙂 Namaste’
