A Sibling Eulogy

BlogHer Spotlight

A sister honors her late brother in this beautiful tribute post, reflecting on their shared childhood and the unique qualities that made him so special:

"We ran away from home, always coming back in time for supper; made daring midnight escapes over the backyard fence; and played a game we invented called "Guess the Shakespeare quote". I kid you not; Walter was an expert on Shakespeare before he even got to ninth grade. I told you he had guts: believe me, it takes a lot of courage for a twelve-year-old boy to quote the Bard instead of Jimmy Page."
