My sweet, sweet, gentle brother. Always so incredibly kind to me. At eleven years old I crashed his brand new Honda 90 trailbike into a stump and bent the wheel rim. He never yelled and after the expense of a new rim he let me ride it again and again and again. A sweet and gentle fellow......except in traffic.....those clowns!
