Ok who thought this one up?  Hallmark?
There is a brothers week, pie month, ice cream month to mention just a few. 
Why do Mothers, Fathers and Grandparents get 1 day?

I have two brothers (no sisters).....the older lives in Anaheim, CA, so will give him a call.  The younger brother lives about 4 miles from him.  I'll probably see him in the grocery store today!

When I was 15 years old my little brother died of a brain tumor that was cancerous.
He had had polio when he was three so he was sick all of his 9 years. He died in April
and I had a brother born in August of the same year. So he was very spoiled from
all the family. My sister took him everywhere with us. He is still very special to me.

Sara my heart goes out to you.Losing a child is so very hard on a family.I'm glad that you all spoiled your new baby brother.I adore my brother and I know he feels the same about me.We lost our much older sister 6 years ago,she is greatly missed.

I have 3 brothers with us still, and 2 who passed away as infants. I think I'll email all 3 brothers, as they are usually too busy to talk on the phone with me. One is in northern California, one in Colorado and one in Iowa. And interestingly, I was able to visit the graves of the baby brothers this past summer when I was visiting relatives in Iowa.

I only had one sister who passed away in 1985 at the age of 52.  I still miss her, but I am close to her 2 daughters.  I have a daughter and a son, so I'd better call my daughter and tell her to remember her brother!!  (She does anyway, they are very close)

I also have no brother.  I should call my daughter and tell her about this but I know her first question will be "when is sisters' week?"  lol.

Have two brothers.  They both live close by, one about 15 minutes away and the other about 30 minutes away.  We are very close and talk to each other every day, even if it is only a few minutes.  Don't  have any sisters.

Have two sons.  Will have to let them know it is Brothers Week.  Thanks.
