Sheldon Burke was my brother

Sheldon Burke was my brother whom I lost 20 years ago on January 27, 1992. I am here to honor his life at this historic event.

Correction - Sheldon Burke was my brother

I lost Sheldon on January 28, 1992. I had January 27 by mistake. My birthday is on January 27, and Sheldon's was January 28. He died on his 36th birthday. We also had a sister, Barbara, who was born on January 16. She preceded him in death on November 29, 1984. She was 21, and she died due to a drunk driver. Sheldon and Barbara are heroes to me.
