What a lovely post about your brother, he sounds wonderful! Good luck to him. :)


What a sweet tribute to your brother and great pictures! As I looked at them I thought "I only know of 1 other Tudor and that's him" LOL My daughter is buddies with Tudor and she'll be missing him as she starts her sophmore year at SPHS. May he continue to do great things at college!


Chris what beautiful sentiments. I can not believe Tudor is 18 and leaving for college! Seems like yesterday your mom was pregnant and Tudor was born. I remember babysitting I feel OLD!!!!

Wish him the best.....
