Life is fleeting...


My heart hurts tonight. I can barely even express my thoughts. My dear eldest brother was in an accident and died this evening. The details are few, and too painful to even express.

My immediate family, nearly 60 of us, are in deep sorrow.

It is tragic. It is painful. The remembering hurts and makes new tears surface where I thought none existed.

My dear brother once told me he thought my writing was pretty good and that I should keep it up. He encouraged me to submit a few stories to newspapers for publication. I write from the heart, how I feel usually comes out on the paper. Not tonight.

I may be silent for a while. We may be travelling to a funeral. Oh, how I hurt just now...

Please pray, he leaves a wife, 6 children and several grandchildren, 6 brothers and sisters, his mother. Oh, he was dear to me. I can't believe he is gone.

Mary, I am so sorry. It is almost 8 months since my own dear brother died and I'm crying for you now. May God prop you up in your sorrow. May God continue to hold your brother's family close.
