First in my mind is his beautiful sister, Gay Nickle Lauritzen, who is deceased. She was so talented with her hands. We were so saddened when she lost the use of her hands, and everything else on her body through the ravenous ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
His sister Charm possesses a beautiful talent, as well. I ran across two sketches she did of the grandparents of his mother, Shirley Elma Rhoades.
