Duane Brent Anderson
My one and only darling little brother. We called him “Bwum,” for no obvious reason. Still do, sometimes. If, at the outset, I was somehow granted the lion’s share of the beauty in our generation, Brent clearly got the cuteness.

He’s kept it really well, over the years, and he’s transmitted it to others of his branch of the family:
Janet (Janet Barbara Tait Anderson)
Mimi (Miriam Wright Penn Anderson)
Nathan (James Nathan Anderson)
Becca (Rebecca Anderson)
Marc (Marc Duane Anderson)
Naturally and properly, he shows up frequently in this account.
