My brother-in-law passed away this morning. I haven’t written about his illness as my sister is a private person and it’s not my story to tell. What I will say is that he had a very aggressive form of cancer and I’ve only known about it for about 3 weeks.
I’m still in shock. Selfishly, I’m feeling lonely in my grief, wishing I was with some part of my family so I wasn’t sitting here crying alone. My sister and her husband were married for over 30 years. I can’t imagine how hard this must be for her, and I don’t know what to do or say.
So many things are going through my mind right now — a series of losses for our family members in the past couple years. It doesn’t seem right or fair. Yet my family is certainly not alone or singled out in this.
My thoughts and prayers are with my sister and the rest of my family as I wait for more information and direction. And I’m also thinking of those of you who have been or are going through similar times.
