My brother Danny Bland passed yesterday on January 12.
He and I had a good visit in September 2015. Had a good talk. He had lung cancer, bad cancer. It spread.

My niece Amanda phoned me yesterday. She told me the news. She is expecting her second child in March.
She said Danny fought hard. But the cancer won.
Here’s a photo of Danny and my dad Earl Bland.
For twenty+ years of being in reunion with my birth family, I am grateful for every minute I had with my dad and Danny.
