50 years ago today, my brother Timothy Allen Pierson was born. He died a year and a half before I was born, so I never even had the chance to know him. But I have always felt a sense of loss, because I had no other brothers. I always called mom on Timmy's birthday. She appreciated the thought.

My folks actually got divorced after Timmy died, but reconciled because of my sister. She was only 16 months old at the time. I have often wondered if Timmy hadn't died, would I have even been born? I guess I owe a debt of gratitude to my sister for bringing my folks back together, but I always wished I had an older brother.

I often wonder what kind of man he would have turned out to be. I'm sure we would have been a lot alike. The what if and the coulda beens....

Happy 50th birthday my brother. I'll see you and mom on the other side.

BDOB.... what a lovely and sensitive post. I think perhaps you may already know how your brother would've been ..look into your own eyes you come from a loving home and from what I can tell about you a wonderful Mom and Dad, which is the foundation for what we are all eventually. It's a shame these things happen in life to leave us behind to always wonder. But if you have peace in your soul you do know your brother. If you believe in life everlasting then you will be reunited with all who you love.

Have Faith , peace and love
rainy

Yes, Ross. I do know that. I have a lot of people I consider brothers and sisters. And for that, I am grateful. Peace.

Dave - all you need to do is see the kind of person you are and you will know that your brother would have been an incredibly thoughtful, kind person... that is how your mother raised you and how she would have raised him.

Thinking of you today...you are in my prayers

Dave,

Happy Birthday to your brother, Timothy. Even though you didn't know him in this life, no doubt, he's been a "guardian angel" to you in your life and that's a "blessing". When your time comes, and you leave this world and go to the next, you and Timothy will become the brothers that you were meant to be, and it will be a joyous time for the both of you.

Take care,
Fred B.

Dear Dave, You and your sister were blessed with your Mom's presence all these years. Now, Tim has her all to himself and lots of catching up to do. How cool is that? And, you know you'll all be together someday.

Did you ever compare his baby pictures to yours? I bet he's the spitting image. Or the exact opposite. I think we'd all be interested in knowing your impressions. Take a good long look at whatever you have and not only see, but feel.

Be peaceful about this. God has his reasons. You know that.

Elizabeth

Another year has gone by and I still think about the brother I never knew.

Happy 51st birthday Timothy Allen Pierson.

I used to call mom on Timmy's birthday. I miss that too.

I think Timothy would have felt lucky to have such a great little brother! His picture is precious, Dave - I'm sorry you 2 didn't have a chance to know each other in this life. Bless you - this thread has really touched my heart.
