Over time, our families melded... to the point where Choi and Aaron's parents became Aaron's and my M2 and D2. I could always talk with Choi about anything, and "her" Aaron quickly became my "other brother" - always ready with a tease or a hug, a serious conversation or silly plotting. His brotherliness is what I will always cherish... and miss.

My Other Brother
It's not often that you get to add to your family, but I have been blessed to add both a sister and a brother to mine! Back in '95, my brother Aaron became best friends with Aaron. They would delight in getting together to play the Star Wars CCG, spewing Star Wars trivia ad infinitum, and doing whatever wholesome teenage guys do when they're together. One afternoon when Mom and I went to pick up my Aaron from the Williams' house, I met Aaron's sister, Choi. It turned out that we both loved cats and that we both had limited patience for our Aarons' obsession with Star Wars. And voila! A sisterhood was born.
