Lost Another One

My last younger brother passed away Tuesday.
Apparent heart attack. It was quick and sudden.

Thankful that my Mom wasn't here to live through knowing that she lost another one.

It's been a hectic week. Strange how just before he passed I was thinking of him. Things we were doing when we were kids. Were only a year apart in age. Two days later I get a phone call saying that he's gone. Everything is always working in two's with me for some reason. Always has been like that.

I'm shocked at his passing. I'm older. It's supposed to be my job that the older ones (me) go first. Not the younger ones.

My sister commented "Your the last. Now the baby in the pecking group"
That's not a comfortable position. I want a raise! But that's too late now to.

At least now I know he to is in a better place.

So sad, Munky. I'll keep you in my thoughts. Remember, he's only as far away as your memories.

Oh no, not another brother! My heart goes out to you Munky. How many siblings in your family? Your Mom has them now.

Is that how many is left now? Or how many did my parents have?

They had an army. 11 to start. Grew up with 8. Now have 2 sisters,2 brothers.
I told my sister and I quote:
