day 11 of Becky

My siblings..... I am the oldest of 5.....MY brother Rob is 14 months younger than I am.  He is living in Omaha with his wife.  they have travelled around a bit because of her job. the last place they lived was in the Seattle area.  I really wanted to go and visit them there but they moved before I was able to. Tim was 3 years younger than me.  We had a very special relationship.  I helped take care of him while he had AIDS.  he called me his angel.  He is now my angel.  He died at that age of 29, and that was 18 years ago in October. Jonathan is my youngest brother, he is 8 years younger than me.  He is very artistic. he lives in Massachusetts and is living on his own.  He and his wife are getting divorced.  He is very sad about that, we are too. He is trying to get on with his life , and is struggling.  Beth is my one and only sister.  She is 15 years younger than I am. Because of the age difference, we weren't very close while she was growing up.  We are gettign closer now but the time difference between NY and Arizona often makes it difficult to find time to just chat.  She add her husband, Kendall,  were here for a visit in august.  I really miss being able to spend time with my siblings....

Day 7 of 30 days of Becky

ok, so I have been slacking....

My best friend....hmmmm...another tough one....I have had more than one best friend in my life...depended on the time and the place.  When I was a teen Candy was my best friend.  She is a white Lake Camp friend. when I was in the navy first Jeff was my best friend, like a brother to me. He protected me when we were in the Philippines.  Then in Coronado, Joy was in my best friend.  I still stay in contact with all of them...and I can say I still love them...but we have all moved on and not sure we could still call each other best friends....good friends always.

Ernie, my husband, is now my best friend.  He is the one I can tell everything to.  He might not always agree with me but he sure does listen well!
