Most in this group are my extended family from childhood because I have no siblings.

Kevin was the leader and he created a lifelong bond between our group that has lasted for decades.

RIP Kevin -- Josh

When Kevin broke his neck in a diving accident, Wayne saved him from drowning.

Kevin's grandmother adored Wayne.

I'll never forget that awful day, Josh. I know exactly where I was when you called.

This is an extraordinarily beautiful tribute.

Thanks, I've adjusted, but still dream about Joyce fairly often.

Hope your health is well following your heart surgery. -- Josh

I don't blame you one bit for those dreams. You (and Joyce) deserve them.

I'm due for back surgery next month, not heart surgery. I got three stents put in my heart two or three years ago, but that's all.

The county will have to do without me in November. I got a jury summons, but I just told them any other time next year would be fine. They wouldn't want me all doped up after surgery to pass judgment.

You can't control your dreams, but I do enjoy dreaming about Joyce.

Blessings for your upcoming back surgery. -- Josh :)

Joyce was beautiful and she died when she was 49 and didn't smoke, drink, and wasn't overweight.

That is terrifying for our son and daughter and the implications of her short life.

I and my children still grieve for Joyce and all that can be said is to make the most of every day.

Live Long and Prosper -- Josh

Siblings have more common DNA than a child does with one parent.

SO?

Your children's heredity comes from the parents not siblings

still remains at a very low 7%
