I’ve Lost My Hiking Buddy

ken-and-meMy brother went home yesterday and so I’ve lost my intrepid hiking buddy.  He was always willing to head out on the Arizona trails with me. When my husband Dave was on the pickle ball court or golfing or playing baseball or watching football my brother and I would head out on a hike.
