She once said about her brother: “Though like most siblings, we don’t agree on everything, I love him and am deeply proud of him. 

“Where you may see a brash, combative loudmouth, I see the brash, combative loudmouth who insisted to the neighborhood boys that I be allowed to play football with them — even though I was a scrawny, nine-year-old girl.”
