My oldest brother Mike

by Jane Owens

My brother Mike passed away February 5th 2012. He was 68. He went to the hospital with stomach pains and never came out. He lived in Ohio and I in California yet we talked all the time and became very close the last 5 years. I am having a hard time with the death of a sibling. My folks are gone also. I feel so alone, even though I am married and have 2 other brothers. I am just trying to get through this tough time. Losing a sibling is more painful in some ways than losing my elderly parents. Not till he died did I see the distinction between the two. I am the only sister and loved him more than any of my other siblings. Is this all there is? Is this it? Is this our destiny? to live till we die. doesn't seem right.
