My brother, the one with

curly blond hair
cow eyes
endless funny stories
a photographic memory, telepathic lens built into his brain
the patience of a saint with children
complete intolerance for adults less brilliant than him
the tall slim body so thin he seemed to lean against himself
and the tremendous requited love and respect for animals
- who would follow him anywhere and dive with him into the ocean back home with complete confidence

has died after a long battle with cigarettes.

He died on Friday, April 3, 2009 at 3:45 PM.

and I can only say two good things about this: I am glad he was alive once and that the organs not too damaged from smoking have been donated.
