Loss of My Dear Brother

by Donna

My dear brother David passed away August 11 2011,he lived in California and the family hadn't seen him for five years we always kept in contact though emails an phone calls, he decided to come home for a cousins bithday party, he was only suppose to stay for ten days but once here he decided to extend his stay almost three weeks,he spent most of his vacation with my parents who live on Cape Cod Mass.I was able to take time out of work and spend a good part of those three weeks with him,he and dad had a vebal altercation and a lot of hurtful things were said, when it was time to leave I brought him to Logan airport when I went to say my good-bye I had an awful feeling I would not see him alive again, I cried all the way home,three weeks later I was unable to reach him after the second day I called his guard house to ask someone to go to his condo and check on him, I got a dreaded phone call stating he was found on the floor barely alive, he was rushed to Cedars hospital in Los Angeles where they did extensive testing,they informed me he had no brain activity and was on life support, the family need to fly out asap,I made the arrangements for the next day for mom, dad and myself,we recieved a phone call before flying out he had passed away, This couldn't be happening, my only sibling my brother my best friend has left me,my dad is dealing with the guilt of fighting with him before he left my mom is still in a state of shock as for me I have become deeply depressed finding it hard to get out of bed, I am in counseling on a weekly basis, everyday has become a struggle, a piece of me has died along with my dear brother.
