“On behalf of the family, I’d like to thank all of you for coming. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Stony’s slightly less popular and charming older brother, Brick.”
There was a scattering of laughter.
“Stony and I used to fight like dogs. We’d argue any point, even when we knew the other was right. We’d never admit it, though. I blame our folks—Stony and Brick, could we be any thing but hard headed?”
“Your sister’s name is Crystal,” David pointed out.
Everyone laughed. Crystal smacked his arm as she giggled.
He pointed a scolding finger at his brother-in-law. “Glad you said it and not me.”
