Brother Steve

My brother Steve would have been 65 yesterday were he still around pacing life's hallways. 

He made this mail holder for me when he was in the VA Center in Martinsburg, West Virginia.
I have it hanging below my favorite picture of him with my daughter Ryan.  (I think he was supposed to be babysitting her:)

Interesting story behind the origins of the Brother quote:

You know the Hollies' version but check out Rufus Wainright doing it set to a video made during the 2010 D.C. snowstorm.
Good excuse to re-show this classic Brian Barnhill photo of Buzzy's Country Store on a snowy day.
