  • To my “0ther Brother”, Harry Brown : Well Harr it has been a long heartwarming child and adulthood for you and your simple Cuz. One of the most memorable was our trip to Cancun in 1988. We were in the process of having a condo built and we decided to take a course in Spanish at a local high school. Upon arrival in Cancun we had to kill over five hours prior to checking-in. We decided to sit outside and order cocktails and lunch. I promptly replied, ” now do not order a thing, I will handle this BECAUSE I can read the menu better than YOU three!!! I managed to ask many questions etc and ok 👌. The waiters delivered every SINGLE item I pointed to OMG…. the bill was almost $20,000 pesos?????? Love you and your family, miss you.
