Remembering my Brother

I was at my Dad's garage tonight trying to fix his car and while I was opening the fuse box, I look on the other side of the hood and there was my brother Dave staring at me just like the last time we fixed Dad's car. I was in that thought when I heard the phone rang upstairs and I told myself "He's gone." I was right, it was my sister informing us that Dave passed away.

I feel so bad for my Dad because Dave is the second child that he lost after my brother Harold died. I can feel his pain. He told me that he won't be able to sleep a wink tonight. My brother's life lasted for five months after he was diagnosed with cancer. The surgery and the chemo did not help him at all.

Below are some of the photos during the 4th of July last year. He was still with us and we never have thought that he has the deadly disease.

In behalf of my family, thank you all for your prayers!

Condolence John on the death of your brother Dave. Also give my personal condolences to your father and your other brothers and sisters and their espouses, as well as to your wife and kids. I know that it is hard for all of you to accept this tragedy to your whole family but God has His own plans for all of us and we should just trust Him that He will accomplish His purpose for each one of us. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
