Loss Sucks!

Sorry about the blunt title on this post, but that's kinda how I feel today.

Two years ago today, my dear younger brother, Tommy, lost his courageous battle with Lymphoma. He left behind an amazing wife and a beautiful 3 1/2 year old little boy.

It seems as though it was just yesterday, and my heart is breaking just as it did that day.

Rest in peace my dear brother! I love you and miss you terribly!

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. I was diagnosed with lymphoma last year. I always worry about it coming back, but keep hoping I may be one of the lucky ones. Cancer is such mean and nasty thing to go through. I know your brother is in a better place, it is the ones left behind to deal with the emptyness. My mom died of cancer, so I know how you feel. (((HUGZ)))

  6. Oh I'm so sorry for the sadness you must feel on this day. When we lose someone we love there is a great emptyness when they're gone. I do hope that your sadness is also mingled with some sweet memories of growing up with your brother and many happy times that you shared through the years.

  7. LOss really does SUCK. I lost my younger brother just days after my son was born, he was 17. It's something you can never get over, just learn to adjust to. I think of the good times to get me through and know he is watching over my babies. Be strong, I am thinking of you.

  8. I agree, Loss Sucks! I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer two years ago. Cancer sucks! I know your heart is breaking today. My thoughts are with you and know that your bloggy friends are thinking of you too. His spirit is with you, his little boy and all your family and his friends. Hugs to you

  9. Aww I am so very sorry about your brother :o( My Pastor once said at a funeral that we are not saying goodbye permanently, but it is I'll see you later because we will see our loved ones someday. That is what I believe and it makes losing someone much easier.
