“Overwhelming sadness”


Description from Px3 aka Peggy: On May 7th, his 65th birthday, I lost my older brother to a sudden heart attack. He was the most intelligent person I have ever known, able and patient enough at 7 years old, to teach his 5 year old Dyslexic sister (Me)to read and write correctly.
Although stern in appearance, he had a very real and quirky sense of humor, and a heart of gold especially for my daughter and myself.
Out of the corner or my eye, I can still see him standing, arms folded across his chest, patiently waiting for me.

    Peggy, so very sorry for your loss. Your pick shows both strength, but also raw, painful emotion. May you find joy in your memories and peace to sooth your pain. I lost my own brother at age 53 to a sudden heart attack. Not a day goes by that something doesn’t remind me of him and his unique personality. I treasure those memories, and I know they are a very healing comfort. Take care. You are in my thoughts & prayers.

    Thank you all for you soothing words and prayers. This was a hard pick for me to do, but I wanted to pay tribute to him and his support of my jewelry making endeavors. He was a strong man, deceptively so for a scholarly computer geek! Alas, his heart wasn’t as strong as his mind and body.

    I’m so sorry Peggy for the grief you are going thru right now. There is such a beauty in your pick reflecting your sorrow that we can see the love for your brother you have. From your words we can see you had a very special relationship with him many people don’t get to have with their siblings. May these memories bring comfort to your heart. Also I think that as I read what the people above me have wrote they care about what you are going through. May the LORD bless your heart.

    I am sorry for your loss my best friend also lost her 65 year old brother in may. She is the youngest in her family and is the only one left. Her brother like yours died of a massive heart attack while dining out celebrating his sons birthday. Hard on the family but what a way to go surrounded by everyone you love. Only time will ease the pain. Try to remember all the fun times with your brother thru the years and a smile break through the tears. God bless
