My half-brother, John, passed away this week in Memphis at the age of 82. He was named after our dad, John Alex Foust, and some people called him Jr. He had 2 full siblings, Haskell and Pauline (Polly), and 5 half-siblings, Orvel, Katherine, Edith, David, and me. Only two of us are living now.
John called me three or four times a week just to say hi. Quite often he had a joke or funny story to share. I will miss our talks. R.I. P. Big Brother.
