This is a request on the behalf of George Rabas, a Czech-American, who has had a terrible bicyle accident. The Go Fund Me page request was sent by Steve and Michelle Ave, two very dear friends of mine. Lets help #GetGeorgeMoving!

Christmas Memory: Christmas Eve, 1972


I tell stories. My Dad tells stories. My Grandpa told stories.

I am a story teller.

This is a memory from 46 years ago. It's about 91 per cent true. I hope you enjoy it. I know this. On my tough days, I can close my eyes, and recall an amazing day with my family that gives me strength.

Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays to all.

Make your own memories.

On loosing a sibling


I am the oldest of five siblings.

My name is Larry Eder. I was borning September 11, 1958.

My twin sites, Mary Beth and Mary Lou came into the world on December 5, 1959.

My next sibling is my sister Kathy, who was born on December 5, 1960! Yes, the exact same date as the twins!

Just a year part!

My youngest sibling is my brother, Brian, born on March 29, 1963.

Here is a picture of my sister Beth (left), myself, and my sister, Lou, from March 1960.
