There is something strange about my childhood. Twelve mos. before I was born, my mother's most idolized and loved brother, was killed in a plane crash with his best friend. My first name is my mother's brother and my middle name is my mother's brother's best friend. Well, I was named after both of them.
I have always wondered how my mother felt when I cried in the middle of the night and she came to comfort me ... was it I she comforted, or did she tear up over her lost kindred-spirit brother and his best friend, saying my name, as she was comforted me, walked w/ me, fed me? I know an infant is very in touch with senses. Always wondered - she won't talk about it, and all I've ever learned is that she kept her emotions inside, at their funerals, etc. cf
