First, thanks for everyone's prayers and to God for listening. While none of us has heard directly from my brother, Dad finally got a hold of someone who worked with bro where he last was workimg. This kid said he seemed fine when he left but they were working 14-18 hrs a day, 6 days a week. I'm sure that's taken a toll on my brother as he not only is depressed, he also suffers from Rheumatiod Arthritis. He also said my brother had to miss events he planned to go to like friends' weddings. Anyway, after talking to my Dad, this kid called someone in San Fran who knows my brother and the San Fran guy said he just saw my bro the day before. So at least we know he is still walking this Earth! Of course, we won't breath a complete sigh of relief until one of us speaks directly to him. Thanks again for all your prayers!
