  •  I am the baby of my family. I had 2 brothers, one (17+ / 0-)

    13 years older and the other 12 years older.  I grew up without them pretty much because they both enlisted in WWII.  They were gone from the  time I was 5 until I was 10.  And, of course, when they returned, they were full-fledged adults and too busy for the kid sister.
    I absolutely worshiped the elder brother.  He could do not wrong, in my eyes.  His wife was the sister I never had.  He died at age 60 and both my parents outlived their eldest child.
    My other brother and I did not get along when we were younger, but became very close after B. died.  G. thought I was a spoiled brat.  I was.  He died in 2000.
    I still miss them both.  Often times, something will happen and I think to myself, oh, I have to tell B. or G about this.
