Default Jlynn's Mike

He's gone. My baby brother is gone. I already miss him so terribly. I feel as though I will not be able to come back from this terrible sadness yet deep down I know that eventually I'll have to.
It's so quiet. This big house feels so empty suddenly.
My heart is broken.

I am so truly sorry for your loss JLynn.

The sorrow is so very deep.

But you did something amazing by giving him so much, regardless of the cost to you. You will own that later, but for now I would hug you while you grieve the rawness of this loss.

I am so sorry for your loss - my PALS was also my sister-in-law's baby brother and she is utterly destroyed, so I can completely understand how you feel. I wish you lots of strength in the time to come.
