    My brother died 10:30 this morning. He would have been 45 on July 7. My Mother is 21/2 hours away. She's 80 and her health is fragile. Some close relatives are meeting me there tomorrow to help me tell her. I can barely handle my grief but hers will be almost too much to bear. I'm afraid this may cause me to lose her too. He was the baby and was two months old when my dad died. My grief seems unending.

    What a terrible loss and so young too. My sister died when she was only 28 so I know something about what you must be going through. Please accept my sympathies. Remember to celebrate his life and the joy he brought to your heart.

    I will be thinking of you and your mother in the days ahead. Pat

    so sorry for your tragic loss at such a young age, then to compound it by breaking the news to your poor mother--may God grant you strength and peace to deal with this and also to the rest of your family. God bless, and my deepest sympathies--L

    It's a hard thing to bear especially when he was so young, 45 is no age at all and its is going to be particularly hard on your Mother.

    My Mum died in Jan and my older brother died two weeks ago and though it's been hard and sad, we're all getting through it.

    This is going to be such a difficult time for you all, I wish I could say something to make it better.

    Take care

    I'm very sorry to hear about your brother's death. 45 is definitely too young. You, your mother, and your family will be in my prayers. I will pray that your mother doesn't fall into inconsolable grief with the news, and that you are able to handle the loss as well. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your mom. You have had many losses at a young age.

    You will be in my thoughts as you start this long journey. Let youself grieve.

    I promise you, one day the sadness and searing grief will not be this bad, as it does and will for the months ahead. My brother died in 1977 and I learned this, even though I thought I would not make it through.

    Thoughts and love are with you and your mom...

    Please accept all my sympathy.

    I lost my older brother at 27... it's hard, no doubt about it; it's one thing when someone is considered 'old', but another when one is still considered 'young'.. and parents are supposed to die before their kids.

    At least she still has you and other relatives... I hope you all are able to comfort her in particular, and byd oing so comfort yourselves.

    My deepest condolences,



    I'm s sorry for your loss..thoughts and prayers for your and your family.
