I just wanted to update you a little this morning.

The freaking beast is at it again. My brother silently and peacefully passed away in his sleep from his short battle with lung cancer. Thanks to all who prayed and shared good thoughts, vibes and just good wishes. Thanks for all the PM's and such, too. I'm sure he and my dad are having a good time about now. :) I hope they're having a nice cold beer and catching up with each other.

It hurts, but I'm really doing OK. After all, he was one of my best friends. He fought a valiant battle and did his best. I'm gonna miss the hell outta him.

Send good vibes to my mom and to his wife and family.

Love you all!!

Holly

We laid Tom to rest on Friday. Today is my first day back on here. It's been an emotional, tiring totally exhaustive week.

I wanted to thank you for all the kind words. This has seriously been one of the toughest things I've ever gone through. I think when families are as close as we are, it's going to be tough. Worse than tough.

Many good stories told about Tom that I didn't know about. Let's say that I'm glad the statute of limitations is over on those. A lot of his best friends from high school were there and many more stories were told that I do remember. :)

My brother-in-law was one of his best friends in high school before he married my sister. He was taking it a little rough as well, but all Tom stories led to laughter.

I love you my semi-colon family. I'm proud to be one myself and to have you as family. :)
