"Different lives and different beliefs but at the end of the day it doesn’t change the fact that we are brothers and there is an extremely wide range of things we can talk about that have nothing to do with our differences." - Bobby Cole I agree. One big thing about family, as we get older, is the value of the shared experiences. We get to the point where the only other people on earth that have any memory of certain people, places, experiences are our brothers and sisters. If nothing else those shared memories good or bad should be our common ground/bond in our final years.
