I have been blessed with brothers, in fact, I was the only girl in our family of four children. My brother, Barry, and I are what some call "Irish Twins," because our birthdays are just over a year apart. We have, as often happens, been close since childhood.
Barry will turn 59 on Monday. This is big day for him, not because of his birthday, but because he is entering the hospital for the life-giving gift of a new kidney. The new kidney comes by way of his best buddy, Rob, who it turns out is the perfect live donor for Barry. Needless to say, we are all so grateful.
So, in celebration of my dear brother, who is one of the best brothers a girl could have in any language, here is a little trip down memory lane via photos.
Love you, Barry! May this birthday be the beginning of a new adventure.
