Family Memories

My brother was a mirror image, in many respects, of our father, Harry. The obvious grumpy facade and the most pleasantly quiet, loving brother and father side. Back when I was just a wee lad, the whole family was riding in Dad's pickup truck returning from Uncle Ed's farm in Croswell. It was late at night and quite chilly in the back of the truck where all of us boys loved to ride (without seat belts). I fondly remember Philip covering me with a blanket while I was snoozing. He played the big brother role very well. We were told many times that he changed our diapers.
Being the first born to a truly great sheet metal man, Phil learned all aspects of the trade (and then some) from his father. Phil drank his fair share of booze and loved his pipe. He gave up the booze completely, which always amazed me, but the pipe smoking endured (maybe too much). ~ brother Alan
