Tomorrow is my First Best Friend's birthday. I say my "first best friend" because that's exactly what he was.

My brother is two years and one month older than me, but he was my very first friend. I followed him everywhere when I was little. Even when him and all his friends were riding bicycles, I would just run behind them, following. There were many lonely times in our childhood, when all we had is eachother, and that is what kept us strong.

I am very proud of the man he has become. He has a wonderful family. His wife, Jalee, is someone I admire, and care deeply about. They have 3 gorgeous children (with one more on the way!!) And although I don't get to spend as much time with them as I used to, or even as much as I'd like, I still think about them all daily.

And though, through the years, we've had our squabbles, I still see him as my "First Best Friend", and I look up to him A LOT.

Joshua David Scott....Happy Birthday!! I love you bro!

AWWWWWWWWWWWW! I love the pictures! I am happy you loved each other that much. I remember all the great times I saw you play together in the fields, as the dogs babysat you. And grew up still friends. Love you both madly!
