In remembrance of my big brother Franky.
It's been 37 years now since you've been gone. Actually to this very day as I write.
I was a young girl when you left to serve our country, and the memories you left me with are ones I will never forget, for I am very fond of them.
Although you were not with us much when you were growing up, when you were I can recall the funny things you'd said or done. You were only in your mid teens and I was around 7 or 8.
I remember the magic card games and tricks you'd play on me, and how it seemed to excite you just as much as it did me.
And the time you dyed your hair and it came out bright orange. You just laughed about it. And the time when you took me for a ride in your 63 Chevy Impala and we were driving past this house where this lady was pulling weeds or something. Anyway she was wearing a dress and had bent over and from the back you see she was wearing white knee-high hose. You honked and whistled as we drove by, but she didn't hear us or even look around to see who it was.
I miss you...

Remembering you, Patsy

Dear Brother, you would only be "60" today,
Only to endure the unknown, the sacrifice, pain and sadness
Even as with these special days do we celebrate
"Remembering your birthday, Franky"
