My beloved brother passed away unexpectedly. A shock! I thought I would have him a long time to come especially since he was doing excellent after his mild stroke. I told him I love him very much at different times during his lifetime, I only hope he knew how much I meant those very words. "Sandy," our nickname for our big brother, was a special person who was loud due to his hearing problem but had a tender, kind heart. He is missed and will be missed forever by myself and my family until we all meet once more on the better side of life/death.
