Topic: My brother has gone home

Hello all. 

I arrived at my brothers on Sunday at 9 am.  I was able to spend some time with him considering how many family members showed up.  I spent the night and got to enjoy him on my own all day Monday.  I shared some very precious moments with him.  Either way my brother passed at 7:55 that night.  His wife and I held his hands when he took his last breath.  I really hope he wasn't scared.  I know he is in a better place and no longer suffering.  He fought for one year and did the best he could.

Thank you to all for your help and prayers!
Love to you all!

Annie

My momma may she rest in peace after her short but courageous battle with CC.  My brother my hero, may he fight CC with all of his strength.

Re: My brother has gone home

Dearest Annie, I am so very sorry. NO, he was not scared. How could anyone be scared going to eternal beauty and Peace and having loved ones waiting for you at your destination? We are scared, they are not, I truly believe that.

Those we love must someday pass beyond our present sight…
They leave us and the world we know without their radiant light.
But we know that like a candle their lovely light will shine
To brighten up another place more perfect…more divine.
And in the realm of Heaven where they shine so warm and bright,
Our loved ones live forevermore in God’s eternal light.

Re: My brother has gone home

Annie,

I am so very sorry about your brother's passing.  I am glad that you got to see him and also that you were with his wife and him.  I have found  this poem very comforting when I've lost those close to me, I hope you do as well.

I am standing by the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze
and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength,
and I stand and watch
until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud
just where the sun and sky come down to mingle with each other.

Then someone at my side says, 'There she goes!
Gone where? Gone from my sight - that is all.

She is just as large in mast and hull and spar
as she was when she left my side
and just as able to bear her load of living freight
to the places of destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone at my side says,
'There she goes! ' ,
there are other eyes watching her coming,
and other voices ready to take up the glad shout :
'Here she comes!'

Dear Annie,

I am so sorry to hear about your brother. It is nice you were able to see him and spend time with him before his passing. He was at peace and able to leave this Earth with his two special girls next to him. I'm sure he wasn't afraid with you by his side. Bless you, Annie.

Love and hugs,

I am sorry to read about your brother.  Your love for your brother is palpable and I'm in no doubt he would have felt that and not fear.

Dear Annie,

I am so sorry to hear of your brother's passing.  It does sound like it was peaceful.  Take comfort in knowing he is now in a better place and no longer suffering or in pain.  There are no words that can make this better, but try to remember him as he was before CC.  Keep him with you forever in your heart and those wonderful memeories.  You and your family have my deepest sympathy and understanding.  Take care.

Love & Hugs,
