 My brother, Melvin, and me with my first Christmas tree.
 With his horse, Goldie.
 On our farm in Fort Lupton
 On our way home from picking him up from basic training in San Diego
 A picnic at my house with his grandson on his lap and a great nephew on mine
 All five of us
 Teasing me as always
One of my favorite pictures - walking with my big brother.

My brother, Melvin, who I adored, who teased me until I cried when I was little, who would hold things far above my head and make me beg to get them back, who would let me stand on the floor board of his motor scooter and take me for wonderful rides (until Mom found out), who always had a twinkle in his eye, a smile, a hug passed away on Wednesday.  I will miss you.
