In Memory of My Big Brother ~By Beth Fryer
Of the four Fryer siblings, Mike and I were closest in age. We were also close emotionally due to the fact that when our mother died early in our lives, we were left to navigate our world alone together. I would follow him everywhere. As a teenager I’m sure this was tedious for him but as we aged it created an enduring bond. When he moved to Japan at 20 years old, I followed him. When he moved to the Philippines, I followed him. When he moved to Guam, I followed him there too. He was always looking for new adventures and I’d always want to come along. It was my privilege to share this life journey with him and I will miss him more than words can describe.
Your loving sister,
