My oldest brother Wendell died early in the morning on Sunday, December 9th 2012 surrounded by family members. He died in the A-frame house which he constructed largely by himself, using heavy stone and timbers from barns and houses which were no longer in use. On the way to and from my formative roots world of Glen Rock, Shrewbury, and New Freedom we passed through Washington Reagan National Airport, fully decked for the holiday season. My brother is buried in the Bowsers Cemetery, New Freedom, Pennsylvania, near the New Freedom Church of the Brethren, surrounded by many Sweitzer generations and other early settlers in the area, including native Americans and civil war veterans. The journey continues while our memories remain with some of those on the Bowsers' hill and a solidly built A frame along a creek and all of those that have been with us on the journey.
