Thank you everyone for your kind and tender thoughts.
There are so many blessings packaged with this tragedy. We are missing our dear one, and grateful for all the love show to my sister and my family.
I made the 4 hour drive from my sister's to my home this afternoon and made up a silly song about how my BIL is free and at peace, the way you can sing stuff in the car and you don't care if you are out of tune and the words are repetitive. It felt good to remember that he no longer has to suffer with the many layers of his illness. The medications he had to take were very harsh with many uncomfortable side effects including diabetes that led to more and more medications. He no longer has to put up with this.
I am going to get back to focusing on my work as best I can this week. At least there are only 3 days left til the holiday weekend.
Blessings to all of you and your loved ones.
