One of the biggest influences in my life was my sister Barbara. She was 12 years older than me, and would dangle me over the railing of the 150 ft. or so bridge in the town where we grew up, supposedly so I could see the boats in the river. Once she decided she actually wanted a little brother we were best friends all our lives. Barbara went through high school in the mid 1950's at the birth of Rock & Roll. When our parents would go out on the weekends, Barbara would have wild parties and I would party and drink beer with them so I had a great early foundation in Rock & Roll and partying, and I never did rat Barbara out to Mom and Dad. A couple times in my life, Barbara took me in when I needed a place to stay and get myself together. Ann and I used to visit her regularly when she lived in Yuma, and when her COPD put her in a nursing home, we went out, spent a lot of time at her place, visited her on a regular basis, until she got up, threw away her oxygyn tank, and walked away. I saw Barbara for the last time between our birthdays in 2011, and she passed the next month. She went in the hospital end of May and I told her to call if she died. The next morning I woke up with a phone message from her, "You told me to call if I died, well I did." I called the hospital and managed to speak with her one more time briefly, then got the call from the hospital an hour or so later.
