So many great memories. Dancing at the father/daughter dance. He was the best looking "dad". Adventures on the Katy Trail. Ted and Jim got lost a lot as our sag drivers. His laugh was the best. Having musical sing-offs to see who remembered the most lyrics.He was my brother my entire life. Always so kind to me. Loved him so much.
