The child on the left is my oldest brother. He will be I think 69 this month. I see his posts on Facebook from time to time, but seldom hear from him. He has made his own path in life. He moved away from home soon after finishing high school, making his away across the country and living in Seattle for a few months. He returned home that fall, with a high draft lottery number and enlisted in the Navy. He spent a few couple of years in southeast Asia, then re-enlisted and spent a few years on the east coast including a deployment to the Mediterranean. He has lived and worked all over north America. Reportedly he turned 50 in Mexico City. He lived with my parents the last couple of years of their lives. Then bought a small place in Florida where he lives. He and I are very different, different politics, different personalities, different challenges in life. I need to remember to send a birthday card.
Do you have family members you only hear from on social media?
