    Sad news

    I haven't been around much lately - busy with a lot of different issues and preparing to move to NC. Unfortunately this morning I lost my race against time, as I was going down to live with my brother and niece, and help out since my brother's health was failing. I received the dreaded call at 4 a.m., that my brother passed away at 3 a.m. He needed heart surgery that he was unable to have until he regained some strength, but it wasn't meant to be. He was 78 years old and led a long and active and productive life until this past year or so. I just wish I could have gotten there in time to see him one last time.

    I will miss him dearly. I am now the lone survivor.............

    Love you, Charlie
    I've Been Boo'd
    Thanks, Barry

    I am so sorry for your loss. I only have one sibling - my big brother and he is my treasure. I can't imagine how painful it would be to lose him.

    Keep your memories of your brother close and grieve as you must. Hugs, Betty

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I have 3 sisters and 1 brother - I am the second to youngest and I can't imagine what it will be like when they start leaving this world.

    Hugs to you.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!
