Thank you CCL for leaving a touching comment in my blog. Seeing my father slowly fade before our eyes was difficult as he fought so hard to live. Although we miss him dearly we realize he is in a much better place.
It's hard to see those we love leave us. I'm sure you will miss the presence of your brother. You must experience the first holidays and events without him. Keep in mind that he is still with you, you just can't touch or see him.
