Forever Young

Matt Lehman, February 1964 – July 2001

Dear Reader:

I’m a writer; I love language.  But sometimes a picture says it all. Just a glance and you can surely see the joy and the pain I feel when I think of my brother. He was handsome, charismatic, kind and very easy to be with. It seems impossible that he’s been gone for 17 years. He will remain forever young as he is in this picture joking about his girlfriend’s early morning romp through the water.

    1. He was the youngest of us and truly the star! BTW…I’m still trying to figure out how to repost your blog…I’ll get help this week!!!! I’m not really a techie!

  1. He was adorable, Michele. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a photo of him before. I see a slight resemblance to you and his eyes. I’m so sorry you lost time so young.💕

    1. Yes, I used to tell him it was unfair…he was born with these ultra long eyelashes …I thought they should have been mine!

  2. I see some typos above! Sorry! I meant to say a resemblance to you IN his eyes and I’m sorry you lost HIM so young.😌

  3. Thank you for sharing this lovely photo of your brother. This is the theme of my blog and the theme I carry with me most of the time “Joy & Woe are woven fine
    A Clothing for the soul divine
    Under every grief & pine
    Runs a joy with silken twine ” (William Blake) You may find the words suit this photo. 🙂 Sometimes it is very hard to find the silken twine.
