"Mary, I am so sorry for your loss. I understand what you are saying that for the first few months you were in a fog.....I feel the same way now. Thank you for your kind words. I hope things are a little better for you now."
"Michael I am so sorry for your loss. Your right God is not fair .. at least in the here and now that we can see. While my faith has helped me through the worst of my grief, I cannot quote bible verses either. Its enough that I…"
"Thank you Michael ad I am SO sorry for your loss. My brother wasn't very religious either. I remember caring for him in the hospital, a friend of mine gave me a bottle of holy water and told me to pour a little in his water and have him drink…"
"Anna, I want to start by saying God is not fair. I am not a religious person but my wife was. She would study the bible and say quotes from it all the time. My wife's sister is a lifetime drug attic....doing all the wrong…"
"Anna, all you can do is take one day at a time, sometimes just one hour at a time, and keep moving forward. Its good that you are being so supportive of your Mom and your sister-in-law but you need some of that support too. I hope you…"
"Hello May, Thank you. I try to spend as much time with both my niece and sister in-law as much as possible. My mother is handling this much worse than I. Since the night he'd passed I have noticed that I try to take a lot of the daily burdens…"
"Hi Anna, I am sorry for your loss. It sounds like you and your brother were really close and I think we all have the same feelings as you at some point. I know I argued with God a lot when my husband was sick, tried to bargain my life…"
"Since my brothers passing in October I hear him in my right ear making little smart comments when I do something stupid or when someone else says something. It's nice to know that I am indeed not going crazy. He came to me in a dream, kissed my…"
I lost my little brother in October due to an infection after he'd beat MDS (a form of leukemia). Everyday is a struggle and I cry at least once every morning. It wasn't supposed to happen like this. I was supposed to pick on him when we got old and I was going to hit him with my cane. All he ever wanted was to be a wonderful husband to his wife and the father we never had to his 19 month old little girl. He didn't smoke, after he'd married his girlfriend of 7yrs he barely went out drinking, he…See More

About my Loss:
Long story short:
My little brother (Sgt Kenneth Reich USMC) was diagnosed in May 2011 with MDS, which is a form of leukemia. The diagnoses came barely over a month after his daughter was born. He put up a hell of a fight and did alot of 1st through his various treatments at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Alot of the staff including lab tech's, doctor's, NP and even the cleaning staff grew fond of him through his long stays at the hospital. He didn't take crap from anyone (I guess you could say that was his inner Marine) and even a few times we had to calm him down and tell him whatever it was, was just going to beneficial in the longrun).
On October 30, 2012 he was joking around with the nurses (as he usually did). He was having trouble breathing because of an onset fungal infection. He'd given permission to be put on Oxygen to give his lungs a little rest. At 7:31pm he passed. My mother had to make the difficult phone call to his wife in Japan (who had been waiting for months to get the "Okay" from the Marine Corps to come over here and be with her husband).
Everyday is a struggle and since each person in my family is dealing with this in their own ways we are all trying to be there for each other. He was always the big bear of our family. Looking out for us, giving us a boot in the ass when we needed it and giving us hugs when we were down and out. Needless to say we are all torn up about this. Everyday is a struggle.

How do I begin to thank you for the life you have given me. A life that included 4 loving children, 4 beautiful grandchildren and memories that will last forever.We had more then the romantic love we had when we first met almost 40 years ago. That fades with time. Through the ups and downs, fights and reconciliations, laughter and tears we had something more. We had true love, commitment, trust, and most importantly we had friendship. Since 1975 we have been together to celebrate every…See More
