Our Brother

We are heartbroken today. Yesterday we lost our brother Patrick to cancer. He was the brother between Polly and I and the closest to me in age. Patrick is now pain free and in a better place. Till we see you again,
Love,

Laurie and Polly

My deepest sympathy. The sibling relationship is so special and leaves such a heartache when one is no longer with you. I received a sympathy card with a Native American saying - they are not gone who live in hearts of those left behind - I'm sure your brother lives on with you.

I am so sorry--but also glad that Patrick doesn't have to suffer any more. I know about holding a dying brother's hand, and wishing for him to live forever--and to die soon.

Bless you all. Your memories must be so sweet--just look at those photos.

I am so very sorry about the loss of your brother.
It is one of the hardest things to have to go through as a family. I too lost my sister at age 40 to cancer and even though it has been almost 10 years my heart still aches for her.
It does get easier and time does help.
God Bless you both and all of your family
