Well, my younger brother (Paul) died on January 17th of this year; he was 34 yrs old. I was close to him, we all live around each other we see each other more then most families see each other no one moved far away. He was sleeping, he had sleep apnea, that is what took him from us. He has three beautiful girls. He worked with my father everyday, we all miss him terribly. The pain god it sux, everytime I think of him I loose my breath for a second. He lived across the street from my parents, where we grew up. I have to admit that it is very hard to go there, just going down the street everywhere I look there are memories. Its so hard to even grasp the fact that he will never walk across the street to talk to us or to come for a visit or to work with my dad. Its crazy just crazy. We also lost my sister back in 1996, she died in a car accident, but this time the death of my sibling has affected me so much differently. Its hard to explain. Maybe because I was closer to Paul, so many times I can remember just sitting with him and hanging out not even talking about anything just sitting there. I miss him I miss him everyday a little bit more.

Hi Ann Marie.  I lost my younger brother on Dec. 29, 2010.  It was very sudden and very unexpected. I was the one who got the phone call from the police saying a neighbor found him slumped over in the driveway.  It was a horrible way to find out! We were super close and since both our parents died 30-40 years ago, we were all each other had.  He never had any children, but thankfully, I have three grown children, so I draw a lot of support from them.  I constantly have an ache in the pit of my stomach that doesn't go away.  I am the administrator of his estate, so I have reminders each day, whether through the mail, or through paperwork that needs attention.  It feels as if my whole world is out of focus.  I am in some serious pain.  I thought it would lessen as the months went by, but it seems to be getting worse.  Not sure what is happening or why I am on the verge of breaking down all the time.  I just know that I hate the fact that he is gone and hate the fact that I am being forced to live in a world without him.  Jane
