Tootie, my thoughts and prayers are with you in triplicate. Having recently lost my younger brother to Hep C, I know what you are going through. We were VERY CLOSE and talked on the phone every single day for three years. Right before he died, we were in the middle of seeing if I could donate part of my liver as we both had such a rare blood type, he was way down on the transplant list. Unfortunatley, they would not consider me. I am too old and have medical issues that would have put my own life in danger.
I am so sorry for your loss. The thing that gets me through it is some wonderful memories.
Tootie, I am so sorry.
It has been many years since my father has passed away but it was similar to what happened to your brother. My mom and dad were divorced and he was living on his own an hour and a half away from us kids. I had tried to call him numerous times and I almost drove up there but the weather was real bad (February in Minnesota). My aunt finally went to check on him as she lived close by. I think it was meant that I did not find him that way. He was 58 years young.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family- and we will be here for you through this-
Tootie, I am so terribly sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are w/ you and your family.
God bless. Alice.

I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one is never easy & when it is sudden and unexpected it is so hard to accept. I will keep you in my prayers that you are given the strength and peace to get through this.
I hope your anxiety goes away and you are able to remember the good times soon. God bless you and your family.
Never regret something that made you smile!
I am so sorry for your loss. You have my prayers coming your way!!!
Hi everyone...........THANK YOU ALL for the many prayers and words of comfort. His funeral is tomorrow. We had to wait for his daughter to fly in from Texas. I didnt know this, but she just suffered a miscarriage a month ago, so shes having a hard time. I am grateful that my brother saw his first granddaughter born. His son lives here in Michigan, and he and I were at the hospital the day his "little princess" was born. So many thoughts, so many memories. My younger brother and I are also very close. We called ourselves the "three musketeers".
We gathered together last night to put the pictures together for the funeral, and it was comforting having the entire family together. There was a bit of laughter, and the tears flowed. I know my Lord will get me thru tomorrow. I finally slept eight hours, after no sleep for two nights, so I am feeling a little rested.
Again, to my family here, thank you all so much. Each and everyone of you have been a blessing to me and have touched my heart. I love you all.
