how weird is that? to me- very odd. i still see him as a kid (he's five years younger then me)... i was a lot closer to him when we were younger so that's how i remember him most... but still.. i dont know if i can ever see him as not being my "baby brother". and id be VERY protective of him if something bad happens to him.... in some ways- it's hard to let go. anyone else have this experience at all?
