ABC Wednesday: B Is For Brother (Sad post, beware!)

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 9


Out of 6 kids, Rick is the eldest.
In May, my brother was hospitalized due to complications with his blood and kidney cancer. It targeted his heart, and his heart kept giving out. Then he slipped into a coma after having too much CPR.
After several heart attacks, seizures and suffering, my family shut down the machines at suppertime yesterday.
At 5 am est, my brother joined my father in God's kingdom.

Rest in Peace Rick. Say hello to Dad for me. I love you.

Very sorry to read this, Freda. My thoughts are with you. I can't imagine how I'd feel if something happened to one of my brothers, because I'm the eldest.
Thinking of you,

Sorry to hear about your loss Fredamans. Life is never quite the same when we lose a loved one. I find it so important to hold onto all the good memories.
My condolences to you & yours.

Please accept my condolences.

I lost my dad when I was in my early teens. I didn't get to spend as much time with him as I would have liked. The pain of his loss is never gone completely, but it does ease with time. I have wonderful memories of him and his love for me and that keeps me strong when I sometimes succumb to sadness.

That is really very sorry for you and your family, but for him it's certainly better now where he is.
