Goodbye

My brother died today. I was with him until the very end and am thankful to have been able to be there.


I don't have too much to add as I attempt to wade through this storm. Thank you for your thoughtful comments and e-mails during this time. They have meant so much to me.

Thank you.

  10. i am so sorry for your loss, empty words i know. but i do relate to what you are feeling, my DH was diagnosed in Feb w a terminal disease, we are trying to buy time w chemo but the disease will win in the end. it is a very rare type of cancer and no one has ever lasted more than 3 years even w chemo/bone marrow transplant etc. so i'm familar w the stages of grief, the impossibility of trying to wrap your head around something too big to absorb, the not wanting him to hurt or be in pain but also not wanting to lose him or say goodbye. so again i am so sorry for you

  12. Oh Maggi, how my heart hurts for you right now. I can't imagine what you are going through, but I hope there is some stitch of peace in knowing your brother is not in pain. You will be on my heart :)

  13. Maggi,
    I follow your blog...usually quietly. I am so sad about your brother. He looked like he was such a dear man. My family has suffered the trials of addiction and I also just lost my husband to cancer six weeks ago so I do understand somewhat what you are going through.

    I guess they have pretty much tossed out those five stages of grief. You are right, I think. There are at least a hundred!

    Wishing you peace.

    Fondly,
    Suz
