My prayer for both you and your brother are that you both will be given the strength for whaterver happens. I won't pray for your brother to live. Rather, I will pray that the Lord's will be done. If it is truly his time to leave mortality, then he will be greeted by those who went before him, and will be waiting for you when it's your turn to go. And so it is with us all.

It is so hard to lose a loved one, be it brother, or parents, or a good freind. I have lost all of those for the time I am still here. But I know that we will be reunited, and will have a great celebration when that time comes.

I pray for you and your brother that you will weather this temporary seperation, and that you will be able to know that whatever happens, it is what is best for both of you, that you may grow in strength, and in your love for each other.

From your opening post, you have shown great fortitude, and wisdom. And yes, if it is not Richie's time to go, miracles do happen. I have witnessed such things.

I wish I had something clever, or sublime to say, something that could carry you through this difficult time. For even if you have strong faith, it is still a hard thing to bear. Just remember, you are not alone, either here, or spiritually.

Seeeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

A big hearty thanks to all of who have sent prayers and wishes, it means so much.

Rich passed on around 4:30 this morning (11/17/06). It's going to be a very simple graveside ceremony on Tuesday, just the way he wanted it.

Thank you so much.

Oh Gossie - I'm so sorry but at the same time you know he's in a much better place. I started posting the other evening and I couldn't finish. I recently lost my sister to a different cancer but none of it is pleasant, is it? I am so sorry and I am sending a big heart-felt hug to you and your family. God Bless.

My heart hurts for I know exactly how you feel

Cindy, so sorry for the loss of your brother. Prayers go out to you and your family. And don't worry about the pearly gates, Marge's Paul is standing watch and Marge will put in a good word for you when the time comes.
