Today, I 've been thinking about my oldest brother.
My oldest brother, Dan, died from a car accident on May 3rd. He had a head concussion and some bleeding on the brain as well as a broken neck. After seven weeks in the hospital, his heart just stopped... the accident was just too much for an 84-year-old man. Dan was strong, caring, loving and the sweetest brother anyone could ask for.
Dan's four children, his grandson, his soul-mate, Trish, two brothers and seven sisters will miss him terribly. Dan is the oldest of 11 siblings. I feel blessed still having eight siblings, and so thankful for having a brother like Dan.
Dan visited us a lot and I will miss his laugh and grin. Dan's grin was a lot like Dad's ... when they would laugh you always saw a twinkle in their eyes. They say your eyes are the windows to your soul...both Dan and Dad were good souls. I miss them both!
RIP Sweet Brother
