Bart day

My brother Bartholomew: May 11,1979--August 8, 2003

Big Bart

Baby Bart

Songs for Bart:

Drive--Joe 90
Dust in the Wind--Kansas
Changes--Phil Ochs
Cosmic Dancer--T. Rex
Sweet Old World--Lucinda Williams

Really, though, Bart's tastes ran more to Digital Underground and 2 in a Room. He would have listened politely to me play sad folkie and acoustic rock songs on the guitar and then said (with lots of cackling), "How about some 2 Live Crew now?" Of course, I'd have to clobber him.

Your brother sounds like he had a really great sense of humor.

Thinking of you and your brother today.

Thank you, Nonny!

I know what you're going through. I'm here for ya if you need anything.

Love to you.

Alkelda the Gleeful said...

Thank you, all!

It was a pretty hellish day. I thought I'd be good at this by now, but I'm not. Three years later, and I still have bouts of denial.

Hi Alkelda,

So sorry about your brother. Anniversaries are always difficult, I think, but hopefully get a little bit easier over time. Take care.

Thank you, thank you.
