40 years ago today....

Nixon was president elect and today would have been my baby bro Stan's 40th Birthday. So Happy Birthday Stan, you are missed.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Yep, I got me a new bro Stan the man. Or as he called himself as a kid Stanie Oochie. And, Gramps called him Stosh. So to my newly anointed bro Stanley. Thanks CLK.

Sorry to hear you lost your brother as well. But, no matter his age and how long he has been gone I'm sure he is dearly missed as well.
It's kinda hard to forget how old your bro would be if he was born on the day Nixon was elected 11/4/1968. That one is kind of a no brainier ya know.

That's why he got a Happy Birthday, I'm starting to deal a bit better with it. It's the days that family members passed that get me really down, it makes me miss them more. But, if today hadn't been his birthday he wouldn't have been the person he was, so it's a good thing.
