My Brother Is Still Around Me

Submitted into: Miracles of Family Category,

My brother, Philip was caught in a rip at Palm Beach in an attempt to save his girlfriend and as a result he drowned.  He was 22 and I was 16.  I loved him so much.  Philip had a bank account worth about $2,000 at the time and Mum and Dad split it in thirds between my other two brothers and me.  I saved it until I was able to afford my first car which was always special to me because I used this $600 or so to purchase it.

As time passed I traded that car for another, still keeping Philip alive (in my mind) hoping perhaps he’d be a little proud of me.  A few years’ later I was involved in an accident which only injured cars, not people but mine was a write off.  13 years had elapsed since Phil died, but my main, if not only concern was that Philip wouldn’t know where I was anymore, because the car was still in some way attached to him.

Now it becomes uncanny.  In my long search for another car, to little avail, a friend of my boss who managed a car yard, phoned me to say he had the perfect car for me.  It was a Ford Laser Lynx, very stylish and I felt a little too upmarket for me at the time (only 1,800 were imported from Japan (made by Mazda). 

So I took it to show my brother David (Philip’s twin) because I knew he wouldn’t hold back, he’d tell me exactly what he thought, fully expecting him to say “NO, not for you, Sue”  This wasn’t the case, he sat in the passenger’s seat and immediately said “This is yours, you have to buy it”. 

That wasn’t the voice of reason I was after, although when I asked why, he simply pointed to the registration sticker, which was dated on the anniversary of Philip’s death.
I knew then they both approved.
