Karen, I am sorry to hear of your loss. Though we never want to let a loved one go, we know that if they have prepared for an eternity in heaven, the separation is temporary. Those who have passed, live on in all who knew them and I am sure you have many wonderful memories of your brother. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
