It would have been his seventieth birthday today,

if my brother had lived. He died at the end of August.

He loved birthdays. He called everyone in our extended family on their birthday.

When I called my uncle to tell him my brother had passed, he commented on that. He was just about to turn 91. He told me that he always looked forward to my brother's call. He said, "I am going to miss that call."

5. My brother would have been 71 yesterday.

He died December 29. Not Covid related.

It's hard to lose siblings. My sister died in 2017, also at age 70.

6. I am sorry.

We lose a big part of our childhood when a sibling dies.
