My brother was four years old when I left home for college. My memories of him were about helping take care of him. We did not really get to know each other until we were both adults. I was surprised to learn that our personalities are amazingly alike and we like many of the same things.
I have seen families drift apart after both parents die so I do not take his friendship for granted.
I will be traveling with a GPS device. Since my stroke I cannot hold a map or written directions while driving because I cannot let go of the spinner knob on the steering wheel (see arrow) that lets me steer one-handed. I am glad my GPS device gives specific directions, like "turn right at Exit 29B to Monroe." It is reassuring to see a sign that says "Monroe Exit 29B" a few seconds later
