World's Okayest Brother!

That would be my brother, Manual.
Being fatherless has been hard... it's become much harder now that my mother passed as well. I couldn't get myself to create Mother's Day cards for my sisters... but I managed to make this Father's Day card for my brother.
My mother's dying wishes were instructing my siblings to look out for me because I am the only single girl in the family and, more importantly, the youngest... the baby of the family. Well, I'll have you know that when I get to heaven, first thing on my list of things to do is find my mother and TATTLE on TWO of my siblings! Other than them two, my brother living with me does what he can. He's living with Stage IV kidney and lung cancer and is pretty sick. But he's done a lot to help me out around my home. The oldest brother is married and I'd say he took The Lord's Word faithfully to "cleave unto his wife" and left his family. Manual calls me... not regularly... but often enough to check on me and when I needed major help with my home... fixing a leaking roof... he did show up... three days late but he showed up! lol So this is for him... world's okayest brother!
