Lost my brother

Post by J Miller »

Just got a letter today from my brother's pastor. My brother, Bill Curtis ( originally named David Miller - long story ) died the 7th of this month. Seems he was in the ICU for two weeks due to a systemic septic infection that would not respond to any anti-biotic. (Not covid, I asked.)

At this point I'm the last of my family.

I'm alone.

When my time comes I'm gonna find him, kick him in the rump and chew him out for not waiting so we could take that trip together.

Joe
