My Dad, My Brother

It has been 2 months today that my Dad passed away.

November 13, my older brother, my very best friend, passed away at the age of 43 from Diabetes. I miss him so. I find myself so many times going to the phone to call him when something happens. I don't know if this is normal or not after 8 years, but I do.
So here is a poem that I found for Daddy and Kim.....
You Taught Me How To Love You
author: Nicholas Gordon

You taught me how to love you
by The way that you loved me;
And by your unseen sustenance,
To see what you could see.
You gave to me through who you were
The gift of what I am.
Your pride in me is now my pride;
Your faith, my caravan.

Your life does not conclude with death,
Nor will it end with mine,
For all the lives I touch, you touch,
And so on through all time.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Proudly Brought to You by Dixie 11:55 AM

Thank you so much for sharing sweetie. It's a very beautiful poem.
I know what a difficult disease diabetes is to cope with. It robs people of so much.
Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Smooches and hugs!

Hi Honey;

Being lost in my own world, I did not know some of the pain you had been going through.

Hugs babe and keep that smile going.
