Oh Pat...I'm so so so sorry. I know how hard this has all been for you, and while he no longer has to suffer with all of those problems, I know it doesn't alleviate the pain. My condolences and the biggest hug you can imagine.

Pat -

Add my thoughts and prayers to those of everyone else. When my mom passed, I took comfort in knowing her struggles had ended. I hope you can do so, soon.

Oh Pat, I'm so sorry. I've been thinking of your brother lots, since you told me what he had, and when I read last that he was back in the hospital I hoped it would go better for him. I'm so, so sorry.

I am so sorry Pat. I haven't been reading very many blogs lately and I missed this entry. I could hardly believe it when I saw this entry. May God give comfort to you and all his loved ones and friends. May God Be with you my friend. Love, Helen

His life had quality because of your constant and steady care. He was blessed with your presence.

I hope that you'll hang on to that thought as you grieve ---

I recall this Irish saying:
"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal." -

Hugs for you.

Oh Pat....I am soooo very sorry for your loss, my dear. I know the pain of loosing a sibling. And I feel for you with all my heart!
I have been quite busy and so have not been around very much...When I read this, the breath went out of me. I know hoe devoted you have been to your dear brother and what a difference you made in his life by being close and taking such good care of him. I send you hugs of comfort at this very very tender time, my dear.

Work kicks my butt at the absolute worst moments. I have been absent almost all week. I am so sorry to be a week late in sending you my condolences on your brother's passing. I obviously only knew him through your discussions of him but he was such a part of your life that came out through what you wrote on this blog that I feel the loss. I am so very sorry. I know that he was suffering physically and that it is not something anyone wants to see their loved ones go through but that does not make it any easier when they pass. Anything you want or need, beyond my thoughts and prayers, please ask.

Pat, I don't know where I've been, but I just now read of your brother's passing.

Please accept my delayed, but very sincere, sympathy.

I know you will have your ups and downs over the next ... period of time.

Prayers that he rest in peace and that you and your nephew find ways to heal yourselves.
