STILL MY LITTLE BROTHER
Freddie...(second from right)
CONGRATULATIONS to my little brother who recently was promoted to Lt. on the Bossier City Police Department. He's devoted many years to helping keep our streets safe and worked tirelesly as an advocate for children's rights and safety.
I'm so glad he is getting the recognition he deserves. I'm proud of my little brother who is a wonderful husband to my sis-in-law, Mary and father to six children and too many grandchildren to name.
He has gone almost as far as he can in the Masons and Shriners and spends a great deal of time volunteering with the Shriners Hospital and CASA and other organizations.
I was 2 1/2 years old when I first laid eyes on my little brother. I can vaguely remember Momma placing a tiny pale yellow fuzzy blanket on my lap and recall the feelings of awe as I glanced in the tiny red face with blue eyes gazing intently in mine. I remember loving him at first sight, so I guess he was my "first love" behind that of course of Momma and Daddy.
He was my only playmate growing up.
We don't make the time to see one another often but I believe we are still strong in our mutual love from another day and another time.
He helped carry my boy to his final resting place and for that alone he is dear to me like none other.
He ain't heavy. He's my brother.
