I don't know what to call this post, and I don't have it in me to try to be creative with it.
My brother passed away today from complications of lung cancer. To say the family is devastated is putting it lightly. This happened in a span of about 12 days and it hasn't quite sunk in yet. He, my sister (Jill) and I were like the three stooges, and Jill and I will be lost without him. He was the leader, the rock, the mentor, and the best brother ever.
I am headed to New Jersey in the morning, along with my sister, to handle the services and whatever else needs handling and to support his daughters through this very very difficult time. I am not sure when I'll be returning.
Phyllis, Jaenne, Mark, Don ... you guys are incredible and I can't thank you enough for all of your support. I'll be in touch.
