    thank you all dear friends

    i am so happy he is out of suffering, he had a rather difficult time only for two weeks and intense pain
    for around 13 hours towards the end

    he walked to the hospital and was conversing with visitors till then.

    i attribute that to all the prayers of our friends...thank you

    however i dare not contemplate the road ahead...right now without him...

    it is just too painful...just too frightening..

    wind ..me too about going to the Source. sigh

    god bless

    (((Springwater))) I am very sorry to hear about your brother. I lost my sister a month before Christmas of last year to complications from cancer. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through as you must be feeling right now. Remember all of the goods times with your beloved brother - those are the memories that will help you get through your grief over the coming months.

    Keeping you and yours in my prayers, Springwater.

    I read your updates on The Porch thread on Chit Chat and pray.

    Keep talking it out here too if you're up to it.

    my relationship with my brother was a complex one..he was helpful as well as causing me
    great distress...but we shared so much...he was the more active and into life of the two of
    us...he sort of lived every moment whereas i withdrew from life into an abstract world of
    dreams when i found the going tough...

    patti - your message and understanding is so sweet..i lost so many loved ones over the years
    parents, friends, relatives, pets...and i think i ought to hv developed a desensitization...

    but no, every farewell has left its mark..dont know whether i should feel thankful i
    can still feel or feel sorry i havent become a robot with dead metal for a heart

    thank you both for writing

    god bless
