Brother Passed Today

It is with a saddned heart that I'm letting you know that my brother passed today.  Yesterday my older brother called very early morning and said the doctor had said to call the family in.  Being out of town we were planning on today, but glad we made it in yesterday.  His daughter just drove in from Texas but they said she had time but she felt the need to be there so she came in anyway.  Yesterday all his kids were there, my dad, myself, his wife.  I'm so fortunate that my heart said go instead of waiting just a measly 24 hours.  This morning hospice said he wasn't responding to touch, but they did ask him two very simple questions.  One "do you see your mom" and he answered yes (or nodded yes) to the second question, "do you see Jesus" and he answered yes.  For those that believe - this is profound.  For those that don't - you shouldn't fear dying as he seemed so peaceful, I was told, by answering, so just hold on to whatever belief you have.  My heart is aching, but my love for all of you continues as you struggle in this terrible disease.  My brother found out at Thanksgiving and didn't have much time until now.  I'm glad for all of you - my extended family.  Please keep us all in prayer, good vibes and thoughts through this terrible ordeal.  You all are in my prayers daily.

Hugs!  Kim

    Sincere sympathy

    Kim, I am so sad to read this news.  I think God has a way of sending us all messages and I believe some of those messages were sent to your brother's loved ones to gather in his final hours.  I'm glad you were there.  It helps
