OT/My Brother passed away during the night

It is with a very heavy heart that I want to share for those who have been following my brother Tommy's story that he passed away during the night. I am heartbroken but at the same time relieved because he has suffered for too long. Tommy is now with our Dad and his son.I want to thank all of you who have been so kind and praying for my brother.

Oh dear friend, my heart breaks for you as I write this; yours must be aching something fierce for your beloved brother. What a strong man, what an inspiration in the way he fought -- not just during this last crisis, but against all the obstacles throughout his life that you relayed to us.

He's now in the kingdom of all that is good and brilliant and free of pain or cares, as he deserves to be. I hope you can feel our "cyber hugs," as Libby would say, for they convey the same comfort as would the real thing in person. Our loving prayers continue for you and your family, that in time, you can feel peace.

Beauty Junkie, I am so very, very sorry to hear this! I hope that when the first bitterness of pain has passed that the knowledge that your brother is healed and whole again will give you some comfort, but in the meantime please take comfort in knowing that your friends here are holding you close in their hearts, with love and sympathy for what I know is a terrible loss. (My baby brother died of hypoglycemic shock six years ago last month, and not a day goes by I don't miss him, but at least I know he no longer struggles with his diabetes and intervertebral disk and spinal damage and pain, and that is a small comfort.)

Beauty- I am so very sorry{#emotions_dlg.sad}

You are in my thoughts

as you sail through the sea of grief.

I pray for your healing

and comfort from the Lord

In time, the choppy waters will calm,

and you will find comfort in pleasant memories

and stellar views of the horizon.

You will remain in my prayer angel.

I wish I could reach you to give you gentle hugs as needed

This is by Joanna Fuchs:

Dear Lord, please comfort those in grief,

Love them, Lift them, give relief

For loss they've suffered, sadness felt;

Make this sorrow slowly melt.

Lord, let happy memories ease,

creating peace like a gentle breeze,

And as you help them make it through

Draw them closer, Lord , to you

Sincere condolences on your loss.
