My Brother.

John N. Strong
May 31, 1977-Oct 1, 2004

I don't what to say. I am not sure if I should say anything at all.


It's been one long hard year...I still don't believe it. He just didn't wake up. Acute Myocarditis they say, uncommon and could happen to anyone.

Life is precious and we don't know how long we are here for...
So enjoy your life...knit if it makes you happy:)

If you have the time, check out the website we have done in memory of my brother. Check out the video of his life.

Things are busy now with the memorial weekend, so hardly any knitting. More posts next week!

Like Diana, I could never imagine losing a sibling. So young, so unfair.

Hugs.

I am so sorry for your loss - I truly cannot even imagine the pain and sadness of losing a sibling. The memorial weekend seems like a wonderful remembrance for your brother.

I went through the memorial website, and I have to say that your family did a wonderful job of capturing memories of your brother. He was obviously a very special person and well loved, and I can't imagine how hard it must be to have lost him.

I am so sorry for your loss. I had a close family friend of mine pass away of the same thing. The website is a wonderful tribute to him.

What a fantastic memorial website for your brother. I loved seeing him ham it up for the camera. I can only imagine how hard it is for you to be missing him.

I hope this memorial service will strengthen you and your family. May the happy times you shared with your brother lift you up and bring you joy even in all of your sadness.

I am in the process of losing my brother; can't believe that it is happening, or that it happened to you. My brother is 10 months older than me; he is suffering from a recurrent brain tumor. He is the most gentle, wonderful, person. I can't imagine losing him, and yet, I know that I will. Thanks for sharing.
