Lost my brother today
Posted by: lost in space
Date: October 09, 2016 12:24AM
My sister-in-law called this morning in a panic because her husband, my brother, had stopped breathing. EMTs were called, and they were able to revive him for a few minutes, but his do not resuscitate order came to light, and he passed peacefully at about 11 this morning with us at his side. He'd been battling cancer, but seemed to have been doing pretty well at a young 72 until a few months ago, so this was not altogether unexpected, but happened a lot sooner than we had expected. I'm off to bed. It's been a very long day.

Hold your loved ones close.

My sister's husband struggled with it for 4 years and quite few rounds of chemo . For all of his rather large family it was a bit of a relief. He struggled more than his grand sense of humor thru it all revealed. Regardless,sorry for your loss, hoping his marks in a this world live on in the hearts of many.

Sad news...

In my experience, it is kinder to everyone not to prolong the suffering.

I thought about that when I was recently in the hospital.

I'm saddened by your loss, lost in space.

I do hope that your sadness will be lightened by memories of happy times spent with your brother.

I lost my brother suddenly almost 16 years ago. He was 22. I'll never forget that night. All I can say that it gets easier. It never really goes away. My condolences.

Keep him in your heart. I lost my favorite brother 15 years ago to cancer, he was only 59. I can tell you that you will only remember the good things. I think of him every single day. I still cry, but I smile more. Stay close to your family and don't forget about your Sister-in-Law.

Although I don't know anyone here personally, I feel comforted by your kind words.

We were indeed fortunate to have been at his side as he passed. What I hadn't known was what an honor it would be.

Many thanks to all of you for the prayers and condolences.

In another thread it would be cool to see a kid pic of your brother.

I'm so sorry for your loss. 72 is a young age. It truly is a blessing to be by someone's side as they pass on. I had that experience with both of my parents.
