Happy Birthday, Brother George

My brother, George, who died several years ago, would have been 66 on this day.  George was my closest brother in age, being 3 years older than I am, and he was one of my best friends.  We had a connection that was special, and I miss having him around to talk with.  I had hoped that my daughter Sarah’s baby might be born today so he would share a birthday with George, but this is not to be.  Still, there won’t be a January 7th that goes by that I don’t remember my beloved big brother who personified kindness and love.  I adored him, pure and simple.

Here is a picture I found today.  George and our mom are with his daughter, Leslie, and my daughter, Sarah.  This must have been in the mid-80’s.

My brother George is the boy on the left in the first row.                                                  John (flat top) is unnamed in the listing.

I don’t know the date, but would guess this is early 1960’s

  1. I am just now reading “Into the Night” by Jay Simpson. Your brother, John, is mentioned several times. Best to you and your family in 2016.

  2. I had the privilege to work for Sam and George at the Big Bang St. Louis location. Loved my talks with George. Grateful to have gotten to meet 2 great guys.

  3. I do so much miss George. I loved him… He was and is a big part of my life…
