Lovingly Dedicated to William McCoy

Dear Big Brother,

I'm writing you this letter
Hoping that you are well
Glad you're my big brother
Loving you more than I can tell

We sure did have our moments
In those years of growing up
All the spats and bickering
From the time I was a pup

The usual sibling rivalry
We often took to the extreme
I still recall the pranks you played
That, at the time, seemed mean

Though no harm was ever done
We argued and tricked each other
Until we saw the looks we got
From the terminator known as Mother

Many times, we went overboard
With our teasing and wise cracks
But the vision of Mother with a switch
Sure stopped us in our tracks

We always ate our lunches together
In grade school, by the bridge
Ashamed of biscuit and onion sandwiches
That Mother had made for us kids

In high school, you shooed the boys away
Who wanted to ask me for a date
Threatening them if they bothered me
Though I know it didn't change my fate

I don't remember ever thanking you
For being my protector and my friend
We went from feuds and skirmishing
To sibling love that has no end

Remembering when Virginia and you visited
Luke and me when we lived in Phelps
How you supported me at his funeral
At a time when love of family helps

Now we're all getting up in years
Only God knows how much time is left
But there's always time to let people know
That you love and value them best

So, I thought I'd write and tell you again
That I love you now as then
You're still my knight in shining armor
As my heart remembers when

Love from your Little Sister,
