I'm so sorry for your loss. Sending you lots of and since today is the funeral, I've said an extra prayer to send you strength.

May your memories comfort you and sustain you in the days ahead.

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
whatever we were to each other
that we still are
call me by my old familiar name
speak to me in the easy way
which you always used
put no difference in your tone
wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together
pray smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
without the trace of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever meant
it is the same as it ever was
there is unbroken continuity
why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you
somewhere very near
just around the corner
All is well

I know that when my mom was in palliative care I read a book that was of great comfort to me. It is called "The Next Place" by Warren Hanson. I read it at her funeral and when a family friend passed away I was asked to read it at his funeral. If you can find a copy it is very uplifting and comforting It was also great for my kids.

By the way, if my children ever see this, I'll deny writing it

Thank You for all Your Support and Prayers...

We made it through the funeral with the help of my uncle and Aunt, friends, prayers and support from everyone including my fellow Disers!

My brother was an engineer for McCain foods in their head plant in Florenceville, NB. He was a very smart man. He never bragged and he quickly climbed the ladder. He travelled with work to many places worldwide such as South Africa, Argentina, New Zealand, China , Portage and many other locations. He received many flower arrangements worldwide and I received many condenalces from people all over the world. Donations were made to the Cystic Fibrosis foundation and Children's Wish foundation of Canada for my son in my brother's memory....

Because my brother Bill was so quiet, he never spoke of his many accomplishments. I learned so much from in collegies about him during his final days here. He was well respected. McCain had to bring in a crisis team to help his co-workers deal with the shock of his sudden and tragic ending and sent out a worldwide memo of his passing. Everyone hurt and was shocked with me.

His Eulogy from Co -workers and friends made us both laugh and cry. What great tributes to such an amazing and talented young man! One great acheivement was the invention of the machine to make the curly fry! That idea was solely his...

He designed many plans for new plants and expanditions of others.

I draw comfort in knowing he died doing what he enjoyed doing most. He is also survived by his two dogs (his boys) Maverick and Boomer, Gordon Setters. They too are at a loss!

God Speed, sweet brother! He will forever remain in my heart....

I'm so sorry! My heart goes out to you. I only have one sibling and that is my brother. He and I are very close. My brother is 42 yrs.old and deaf. I can just imagine the pain you are going thru. God bless you and keep you strong!
I'll be praying for you.

So sad for you. No comfort for you, but whenever my DS(14) has curly fries I'll remind him to say a prayer for your brother

My prayers are with you and your family. My brother is my closest friend, so I can't imagine the pain you're enduring.

Good luck.

You are in my prayers. I have lost two brothers--one to non-hodgens lymphoma and the other in an accident. It isn't easy as you know. I know this time in your life you feel so alone but you aren't. You always have the people on this site praying for you and it will get you through.

I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. I can relate about your mom, my grandparents raised me, and my Grandma (mom to me since I was 3 months old) has been in a nursing home for 3 years with Alzheimer's. I hate that disease. She is 67 years old, and her symptoms started about 11 years ago.
