If anyone were to ask me to describe my brother Jim
Well, He was
but most of all complicated.
He was my best friend.
He understood me more than anyone else.
I only wish I understood him.
My brother had terminal mental illness.
On May 17th, just a little over 2 weeks ago he
hanged himself in my mother's garage.
My heart is broken and the image of him laying on the concrete floor of the garage after he was cut down will forever be burned into my soul.
My heart is broken. I feel so disconnected from the world right now and so very, very sad.
I looked for a letter from him but to no avail.
I even thought he perhaps mailed one to me before he took his life but was extremely disappointed that my mailbox was empty.
Our whole family is shattered. I don't understand.
I found this website the day he died and this will be my saving grace.
I am Jim's big sis.
