    I got a call from my younger brother notifying me that our oldest living brother has been placed in hospice care and is failing fast. I am awaiting news from the doctors on his condition but it looks like I will be heading to Pennsylvania to say my goodbyes.

    I wish that we were closer over the years. Tommy was closer to our oldest brother who passed away some 12 years ago. He had a troubled past and I am afraid burned a lot of bridges with his family. I feel very sorry for him as he faces his fate without those folks that he pushed away over the years. He is the father of three and has had little to do with them over the years.

    I will be heading home soon to spend some time with him. He is not very lucid but I hope that he will know that my brother and I will be with him.

    So sorry to read this Dan.

    How lovely that you and your brother will be there for him, especially as he seems to have alienated so many of his family

    Oh Dan I am so sorry to hear your news saying goodbye is one of the hardest things to do :( no matter why or what happened in the past, no-one deserves to go like that

    Thinking of you always









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
