Today is the 30th anniversary of my brothers death, he was just 27 when he was killed in a freak accident at work. It was his daughters 3rd birthday and the day before his partner had told him he was to be father to twins, a little boy and girl were born 2 1/2 months later. His little boy Stephen was 5 when he was killed and even today I don't think he ever got over it..........
Tom and I were the middle kids and even thou he was 5 years older than me we spent a lot of time together. Actually there is a lot of Tom in my Shawn, getting into trouble very easy for the pair of them! They say there is one in every family ehhhh? Tom was my mum's, maybe thats why she and Shawn are very close.
Our childhood wasn't easy but the 4 of us were all close (despite having 10 years between the youngest and eldest) and Rod, sis and I still are, thou we don't see one and another as often as we would like.
Anyways today just sitting here taking a lovely little walk down memory lane.
