Oh, how my heart weeps, though I know in God’s arms he sleeps;
So many things we don’t understand; so always remember it’s in His hands.
So blessed to have you in my life; no longer will you have discomfort or strife;
Peace and comfort to your wife and son; I love you Danny Boy, you were the one.
My cousin posted this on Facebook. This is about my brother. I lost another one last Friday night to illness. Three years ago my brother Gary died at 48 from a massive heart attack. 10 months later my mom was found on the bathroom floor dead. Her heart just stopped. She was very depressed after Gary died. And now this.
Danny was my oldest brother, only 54. All kinds of complications, but the bottom line is he died of ARDS. Acute Respitory Distressed Syndrom. They called 911. By the time they got there he was in a comma. He was in there for 9 days and never woke up. He was my brother that taught me and helped me with woodworking. And the one that would have been mad at me for posting his boat he built on this site. He built his cabin which is right next door to mine 28 years ago. He died Friday night and I went to the river Saturday morning. I think he beat me there. I know he was there with me, that’s why I went. He’ll always be there with me. I look over at his cabin and it is just a big as life. Can’t explain it, but I see him when I see his cabin. I’m gonna miss him terribly.
My dad is 80 and has buried his wife and now two sons in the past three years. This is so hard on all of us. I love this site and havent posted much lately. I really havent been doing much of anything. I need to get my life back. Way to much going on. I hardly ever post blogs, maybe because I’m more of a private person but I felt like sharing this tonight. I really miss my brother.
