    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

    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.

    Peace, Pom. Hugs and rest assured that while you may be the lone surviving sibling, your are NOT alone.

    pom, I am so sorry. I had just the one sister who died 7 years ago. I hope your brother's passing was peaceful.

    Hugs, hugs and more hugs to you.
